TaskStream is the electronic portfolio vendor of choice on Villanova’s campus. Since TaskSteam is a Building block partner with Blackboard Learn, access to electronic portfolios from the My Institution page is possible.
Several types of electronic portfolios may be created using TaskStream. A Resource Folio may be setup for the storing of artifacts. The Resource Folio may be thought of as an electronic file cabinet. It may be organized by topic or course. A Presentation or Showcase portfolio is easily created using a variety of pre-defined templates. This type of portfolio includes an opportunity for reflections. A Directed Response Folio is a bit more structured type of portfolio and may be created and customized according to the needs of the instructor. All portfolios contain artifacts.
Artifacts may include samples of writing, excerpts from papers, MS PowerPoint presentations, and images, audio or video clips. Instructors, peers, team members, and potential employers can be granted permission to view specific artifacts with an option for them to provide feedback.
TaskStream provides additional tools for assessment and data collecting and reporting. The data collected could be used for accreditation purposes. Many of the reports available through TaskStream can be exported to Excel for further analysis.
