A Portfolio for Life Long Learning

The only ePortfolio platform to span the education spectrum - from Pre-K through Career, SchoolChapters provides innovative solutions, services and resources that enable educators, learners and professionals to easily collect, reflect and showcase educational and learning achievements as well as manage their professional identity.

SchoolChapters provides users across an institution, from administrators to students, the ability to easily create portfolios around the objectives that matter to them. Whether you are managing and assessing student learning outcomes, working to align evidence to key standards for accreditation or concerned with employability, SchoolChapters meets your needs with ease - all within the Blackboard Learn™ platform.

 

 

I am pleased to see our program growing with SchoolChapters. Students are excited and helping each other connect to the standards, and it's helping us improve the quality of our instruction as well.

Portable, Data-Driven Solution to Meet Institutional and Student Needs

Portable, mobile, social and integrated directly with Blackboard Learn, SchoolChapters' portfolios encourage students to be active participants in their learning experiences and promote a better understanding of how coursework and real-life accomplishments relate to standards, competencies and professional goals.

With SchoolChapters' cloud-based file sharing and storage system, users can store, access and leverage data anytime, anywhere to create portfolios for multiple processes, including continuous improvement, assessment, accreditation, credentials and employment. Outcomes and standards based portfolios are generated automatically based on alignments to evidence, courses and assignments. Conversations, comments and live-chat provide informal ways to help students reflect on their work while rubrics, assessment and badges allow for review and validation.

Crosswalk functionality and robust reporting tools allow institutions to effectively leverage data for accreditation, prove value for funding and innovatively increase engagement and retention.

SchoolChapters provides institutions with one solution that easily aligns data to any outcome, standard or objective, while also providing a rich student centered experience. Combined with an advanced Blackboard Learn integration, the result is highly-accessible data available for tracking, reporting and employability.

Developed for education, SchoolChapters portfolios are easy to implement and even easier to use.

  • Deep integration: Single sign-on, assignment synchronization and gradebook integration allow instructors and students to manage all portfolio processes from within Blackboard Learn.
  • Complete portability: Students benefit from unlimited cloud-based storage and the ability to manage their portfolio inside and outside of the LMS, from institution to institution and post-graduation.
  • Intuitive, easy-to-use interface: Sleek, modern display enables easy uploading, tagging, alignment and sharing of data. Evidence can be featured in multiple portfolios and shared on social networks, such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
  • Anytime, anywhere access: Web-based technology and responsive design ensure a superior experience inside and outside Blackboard Learn and across all browsers and mobile devices. In addition, students can work on portfolios offline through a free mobile app.
  • Support for standards, rubrics and badges: SchoolChapters supports formative, summative, authentic, direct, competency-based and standards-based assessment. Users can grade on preloaded VALUE Rubrics, imported rubrics or custom rubrics. Instructors can also create and distribute digital badges to further demonstrate learning achievement.
  • Security and privacy: Role-based permissions restrict access to data based on user type, context and relationship.
