Please note that eFolio may be unavailable at times between 8am – 9am on Weds 17th September while we upgrade the system.
We are implementing several new features, as well as upgrading the wordpress element to v 4.0. If you have any questions or concerns please email email@example.com
A full list of features is described below
1. WordPress upgrade to v 4.o.
For more information on this watch the video!
2. LinkedIn Integration
You can now integrate your linkedin profile with your eFolio profile. This allows you to display your LinkedIn CV / profile in your wordpress ePortfolio, or request feedback from your personal tutor about your CV.
3. Graduation Pack
This new feature aimed at graduating students allows them to create a personalised PDF download that highlights all their accomplishments during their time at the University.
You can choose from a selection of styles, embed your LinkedIn CV, list your modules and grades, assignments, skills and competencies and other achievements.
4. Other tweaks / changes
For staff, if you are using the skills and competencies application for skills audit, you can now choose to hide the ‘percent complete’ graph from students, as this is not applicable in this situation
We’ve implemented a new PGCE wordpress theme aimed at PGCE students. This includes targets and action plans and weekly reviews. Only use this if you are enrolled on a PGCE course!
If you’d like more information on any of these changes / new features please get in touch.
We have streamlined the alumni process and incorporated a ‘Graduation Pack’. This allows students to create a personalised PDF of their time at Southampton, including a list of all modules they took, grades achieved, assignments, their LinkedIn profile and lots more.
For more information on any of the new features mentioned above please contact Alex Furr
We’re looking to expand the functionality of the tutor dashboard in the next few months to better enable student tracking, support and PPDRs. This will be similar to the PGRtracker, but for undergraduates.
If you’ve got some ideas of what you would like to see, please get in touch by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
A simple list of requirements so far is:
Create an a ‘PPDR’ where staff and students can add comments / documents around this meeting
Have a private discussion area for tutor / tutees that can be kept for archiving purposes
Add the ability to contact a tutee via SMS (if they have signed up to the service)
I’m sure there are other features we can add. Please let us know what you want!
