Such reflective practices encourage learners to identify, articulate,
and synthesize the strengths, values, beliefs, and skills that they
bring into multiple contexts. Hence ePortfolios serve as a valuable tool
in helping learners achieve all of the University Learning Goals and Outcomes,
but particularly Goal 5: Integration of Learning. In addition,
ePortfolios encourage access to and experience with the mixed modalities
of communication that are increasingly central to literate practices.
Overall, ePortfolios, thoughtfully implemented, help DePaul University
achieve its mission of developing “the full range of human capabilities
and appreciation of higher education as a means to engage cultural,
social, religious, and ethical values in service to others.”
Digication is DePaul’s ePortfolio platform. At the beginning of the 2017-18 academic year, DePaul upgraded from “Classic” Digication to “New” Digication.
If a user created an ePortfolio prior to August 26 in Classic, the ePortfolio can continue to be updated in the Classic format as long as the web browser supports it. Digication support for Classic ended September 1, 2018.
For questions related to a Classic ePortfolio, see the Classic Digication Get Help Guide.
