Principle 8, Scenario 3
You are an educator at a small, private college where the administration already has a contract with a particular ePortfolio platform. However, the platform can only be used in a limited capacity on a mobile device. Administration was not aware of this during the contract negotiation phase and now the contract is in place and binding. The small institution did not budget for an additional ePortfolio platform, and you must decide how to proceed. You can use the current platform and have students with iOS devices use the campus computers to access and edit their ePortfolios, or you can search for a different, free platform that is equally accessible across devices.
The portfolio program office updates its catalogue of portfolio criteria and includes the support of popular mobile device platforms so that they are not forgotten when a review of the current platform is conducted and other platforms are considered.
