Indianapolis, Ind.–Aug. 22, 2006–ANGEL Learning, recognized innovator of enterprise e-learning software and services, today announced the general availability of ANGEL ePortfolio 2. The release balances a strong focus on engaging learners to encourage learner participation and adoption with powerful assessment and reporting capabilities to address institutions’ rapidly evolving needs for authenticated learning outcomes data.

Developed in ANGEL Learning’s collaborative design methodology, ANGEL ePortfolio 2 synthesizes the input of ANGEL customers who are implementing ePortfolio initiatives, ePortfolio experts and the ANGEL product team. “ANGEL Learning’s ePortfolio 2 demonstrates, again, the company’s signature strength — a meticulous attention to customer needs,” said Gary Kroll, assistant professor of history, Plattsburgh State University of New York. “This ePortfolio is as much a product of faculty, administrators, and students — in the context of focus groups, discussions, and conferences — as it is the work of ANGEL Learning’s design team. The result,” Kroll continued, “is a product that provides infinite flexibility in creating portfolio assessments for the class, the major and the institution.”

ANGEL ePortfolio 2’s assessment and reporting capabilities provide authentic evidence of learning outcomes and student performance that can be easily customized to meet institution-specific needs.

*Custom learning objectives–Institutions, schools, departments and courses have complete flexibility to define learning outcomes and easily change and add objectives as needs emerge.

*Rubrics–Users develop objectives and goals. ANGEL ePortfolio creates rubrics to measure outcomes automatically.

*Certified artifacts–Import authenticated evidence of learning that includes grades, instructor comments and is locked from editing from ANGEL LMS with a click.

*Flexible reporting–Monitor progress toward objectives, track learner ePortfolio activity. Aggregate reports by class, school, department, and/or campus to meet reporting mandates.

*Demands on institutions to provide evidence of student achievement are evolving rapidly,” said Christopher Clapp, president and CEO, ANGEL Learning. “ANGEL ePortfolio 2 assessment capabilities help institutions track the specific data they need and aggregate and report the data to meet varied demands. These capabilities in balance with ANGEL ePortfolio’s learner-centered reflection and coaching features assure institutions can both foster and provide evidence of learner growth and achievement.”
