Wikispaces (students)


Intended Audience: Any EIU student interested in creating an ePortfolio or who needs a demonstration of Wikispaces.


eiuFolios is a private wiki area within Wikispaces for EIU students, staff, and faculty.

During this training session, participants will be introduced to a wiki template available within eiuFolios that can be used to develop an eportfolio. This template serves as an organized, accessible, electronic repository to collect artifacts that document student direction, interest, skills, and learning both in and out of class during their education at Eastern Illinois University and beyond. This template does not exist to replace program specific or instructor directed portfolios. It exists for students without portfolio development opportunities. This template may be modified to best suit individual needs.
