KEEP is the e-portfolio tool currently being used at UW
Over 3,000 UW users on KEEP Toolkit on the server hosted at the Carnegie Foundation
Significant adoption of e-portfolios already in place at UW
we are currently using a server located in the US
UCIST supported recommendation for local installation of KEEP (Sept. 2007)
Installation Fall 2007 (IST)
Pilot W08-approximately 140 students
Arrangements to transfer UW e-portfolios from the KEEP server in the States
The Keep Toolkit
IST technical support for KEEP including sessions for users- similar to UW-ACE training sessions
On line resources – work in progress
access to images, KEEP Tool tips, visual literacy tips
Workshops/sessions helping users develop visual literacy skills – planning for once a month-sign up basis
Support KEEP for minimum 2 years with plans for continued review of other e-portfolio tools
Suggestion: supporting e-portfolios after students graduate as a way to support life-long learning and retain contact with alumni(ae).
