Baseline: only about 8% (max) of students use their personal Web pages for any educational purposes. Long-term goal: to get up to 100%. Progress: it is very early. Project is at most two years old, from when the idea was first studied, but really the tools are only being rolled out now. . However, in EMS, a college where faculty are strongly encouraging student educational-related use of their personal Web space (e.g., through formal assignments and other means) the usage rate is already approx. 50%.
Increase the percentage of academic content on the free personal web space accounts used by Penn State Students. Foster a more coherent perception of the potential of portfolio assessment to enrich student learning, and thereby to set the stage for the adoption of an enterprise portfolio system that serves as a student-centered counterpart to the University's current faculty-center course management system.
