Electronic Learning Portfolio

Beginning with students entering in fall 2013, all Ithaca College students are required to complete an ICC electronic learning portfolio as a requirement for graduation. 

Why does the ICC include an electronic learning portfolio requirement?

One of the overarching goals of the ICC and Ithaca College's other IC20/20 initiatives is for students to understand and articulate how your experiences in the classroom and outside of the classroom, such as the residential experience, student activities, athletics, and student employment, have contribute to your learning. Your portfolio account allows you to collect artifacts (assignments or other tangible products) of your learning and reflections on your learning over the course of your time here so that, when you graduate, you can articulate how your college experiences in totality have contributed to your development of specific knowledge, competencies, and skills. Additionally, the College can examine the content of the portfolios to document how well students as a whole are meeting the institution's learning outcomes and use this information to make program changes where needed.

Where will I learn about the electronic learning portfolio?

You will be introduced to the ICC electronic learning portfolio during the Ithaca Seminar course in your first semester at Ithaca College. The FAQs section of this website includes commonly asked questions about the ICC electronic portfolio requirement. Faculty specific information about electronic learning portfolios is also available in the Faculty Resources section of this website.

All Ithaca College students and faculty are provided by the institution with an account in Taskstream. Taskstream is an online portfolio and assessment system that allows you to create a variety of electronic portfolios and submit work for evaluation and also allows the College to evaluate submitted work for purposes of assessing the effectiveness of the Integrative Core Curriculum.

Ithaca College's ITS department has created several videos to help you get started with Taskstream and on various portfolios students might wish to create:
