Career Portfolio Manitoba becomes part of Savvyfolio.net
October 22, 2013
Workplace Education Manitoba and Learning Agents Inc. signed an agreement today to transfer control of the Mahara website that powers Career Portfolio Manitoba to Learning Agents, moving from system ownership to a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
Career Portfolio Manitoba will become an "anchor tenant" in a multi-institutional ePortfolio learning space called savvyfolio.net.
Don Presant, President of Learning Agents, had this to say: "I'm grateful for the vision that Workplace Edcuation Manitoba has shown in this initiative, first by making Career Portfolio Manitoba possible, second by opening the way for other institutions to join in this online community for lifelong learning."
Career Portfolio Manitoba is an employability ePortfolio solution for adults in transition based on Essential Skills, available for free to all Manitobans who register for the ePortfolio training course. It is funded by Workplace Education Manitoba with support from WPLAR.
