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 their experiences in the classroom and outside of the classroom, such as the residential experience, student activities, athletics, and student employment, have contributed to their 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 learning experiences in totality have contributed to your development of specific knowledge 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.
