Topics covered will include assessment concepts integral to portfolio use, such as productive feedback and development of self and peer assessment. The speakers will demonstrate an integration of WordPress with the Moodle LMS for organizing student portfolios based on course enrollment, and review exemplars of WordPress portfolios.
