Hi Dan! I liked your post because you posted it to the community and I like and support everyone that interacts in this community. :)
I don't use portfolios per se... but my online students keep a public meta-cognitive journal (blog) of their thinking, learning, experiences and artifacts that they can keep beyond the end of the term. See the student links aggregated by semester:http://etap640.edublogs.org
I will look forward to learning from you as you share what you know here : ) I hope you will add a photo or avatar to your profile when you can and introduce yourself in the Welcome - who are you? forum so we can get to know you a little better. I would love it if you would share more about your experiences and interests. Maybe also a little about what you are looking for in this community, or anything else you want us to know.
: ) Thanks for joining!
PS. Please sign up as an official Open SUNY Fellow in the "Interested" role : )
