David Tosh, Ben Werdmuller write:

"The e-portfolio is used as a skills checklist. Once the course is over, discontinued use; what a waste....."Creation of a learning landscape where learners engage in the whole process both academically and socially should increase the opportunity to build one's learning instead of just being the recipients of information."

"Incorporating weblogs, social networking and the e-portfolio to create a new learning landscape may fashion a system allowing the management of material and creation of public interfaces but also an opportunity for reflection, engagement and the formation of communities of learning and
socialising providing a means to promote deep learning."

Apcala is a new tool to explore:

"It has a powerful mix of access control, file repository, weblogging and social networking.
Apcala is about sharing experiences, ideas, information.
You can control every aspect of your apcala.
Upload video, audio, images and text - attach meta-data and tags to this work - share it within communities you build.
Apcala has the ability to search through blog postings, uploaded files and profiles. It is a complete online personal system. "

And the latest news from incorporated subversion

"Dave Tosh says in his comments
“We are planning to release the system as Open Source - hopefully by the end of this week, fingers crossed!”

Hopefully, by the end of the week we'll get something new to try.
