Portfolios serve as a personal learning space, documenting the full range of learning students experience at Duke. Use portfolios to create an ongoing dialogue with your students, tracking how they learn and develop over a course, a semester, or an academic career.

Tools for Teaching and Mentoring

Get students beyond checking off the “boxes” of courses, grades, and credit hours. Integrated tools like rubrics, feedback templates, peer review, and multi-level approvals facilitate timely feedback and conversations.

Assignments and Feedback in One Location

Create assignments and workbooks for student reflection, collaboration and group work, research reports, and more. Intuitive templates and workbook builders let you easily design and share resources for any context or subject area. The ability to leave both informal comments and formal feedback encourage meaningful interaction with students today and a long-term view of student needs.

Track Learning and Growth

Students can share any of their portfolio materials with instructors, advisors, and mentors as they wish. Students can easily reuse portfolio elements to present information for different audiences and situations.

Help Students See the Big Picture

Assign portfolios to encourage reflection and help them connect the dots of the different components of their education at Duke. This big-picture view enables students to gain deeper insights about themselves and their knowledge and make deliberate choices in their learning careers. Accounts are free for all Duke students–undergraduate, graduate, professional—and for faculty and staff. Free alumni accounts give students access to all their materials, even after they graduate.
