Specifying an ePortfolio

First JISC-funded project. Original project aims: To develop the more widespread use of enhanced learner information, encapsulated by a revised UCAS electronic application form, as a major contribution to the more flexible admissions process (as recommended by the DfES Schwartz Group report) To do the above in support of Widening Participation in HE, achieving continuity between Progress File in 16-19 education and Progress File in HE; Lifelong Learning To provide a set of generic processes leading to a LIP application profile for post-16 PDP developments and learner transition into HE (including UCAS entry, 2+2 entry, etc), employment or further training

Leap2A - ePortfolio Interoperability

CIePD were involved at the start in prototyping ATOM based exports for ePortfolio information, initially with Pebble Learning, and then with the University of Newcastle's ePET and Simon Grant from JISC-CETIS. The result was to begin to define a new, and more lighweight ePortfolio interoperability standard, Leap2A.
