Current systems

The workplan says "Document currently well-used systems that use the general kinds of information envisaged." (See back on the Home page to check on the kinds of information envisaged.)

What I think we are looking for here is mainly lists of tools/systems, with links to more information about them and their use. Next to each system, please give some indication of the relevant information used in these systems.

Please add or reorganise the sub-headings here if you think they would be better.

E-portfolio systems

Please add here details of and links to any other relevant systems that use learner-ownable information.


PebblePad is a general purpose commercial web-based system. Their home page says
"PebblePad is much more than an eportfolio. It is a Personal Learning Space being used in learning contexts as diverse as schools, colleges, universities and professional bodies; by learners, teachers and assessors; for Personal Development Planning, Continuing Professional Development, and Learning, Teaching and Assessment."


The "about" page says "it is learner centred – a form of Personal Learning Environment. This is in contrast to the more institution-centric Learning Management System (LMS) ... Mahara will continue to evolve as a ‘pluggable’, modular ePortfolio system designed to leverage Web 2.0 web services and built with interoperability in mind."


This "is an open source web application which offers personalised evidence gathering for e-portfolios. Users can gather, map and showcase content from a range of online sources, including social network spaces, to support learning and personal development."
It was developed by MyKnowledgeMap, which offers several commercial tools and services.
