Moodle for student ePortfolios

http://www.weblogg-ed.com/discuss/msgReader$3862

I like this idea of using Moodle as the organisational tool for students to create their ePortfolio. Great for while they are at my school but what happens when they leave or graduate. How do they access it? How can they take it with them and continue to build on it?

    The real problem is the shear quantity of users and data.
    You could easily set up a seperate moodle environment for each year level (ie class of 2005).
    However if you externally host, this could become expensive as you are required to continue to host the files of students for years to come.

    A solution maybe to have one moodle environment with courses labelled by the year students started year 8.

    Then set moodle up so that courses that have not been modified for 6 months are deleted.

    This will allow for easy navigation and reduce the content load.

    Another Thought
    Who is going to check all the ePortfolio's for appropriate content?

    Of course allowing student to set up their own blog as an ePortfolio will mean they have complete ownership.
