Barbara: GoogleSites is a wiki, and since there is now a utility to export content to HTML files, that means the content is easy to put in and get out. GoogleApps for Education makes this resource even more accessible to you. You can find out more online at http://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en/edu/k12.html Of course, there are other solutions. One that I'm aware of is White Oak Independent School District in East Texas that uses Edublogs.org as their online student portfolio. White Oak ISD had Helen Barrett (ePortfolio expert) come in and do training with staff, and every student in the district has their own blog. When they are ready to move on, the Wordpress blog hosted by Edublogs.org can be exported and all their work is portable. One contact there is Scott Floyd - Find him on Twitter at @woscholar or via email at email@example.com In the meantime, you might want to read this blog entry on the subject: http://scottsfloyd.com/2009/07/11/my-session-on-e-portfolios-with-staff-and-students/ Podcast - http://teachersteachingteachers.org/?p=176 Others prefer using another product called Mahara for ePortfolios. You can find them online at http://mahara.org/ You can integrate their solution with Moodle. I can't speak to the portability of portfolios made in Mahara. As you might guess, portability AFTER students create portfolios is important. We don't want them to create content, put in "the school's system" and then it's tough to access AFTER they graduate. Account management can also become a significant challenge in an eportfolio initiative. Of the solutions above, I have to admit I like the way White Oak ISD has set their's up. I encourage you to explore that more.
