Yilmaz, Harun; Cetinkaya, Bulent
Online Submission, Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET v6 n4 article 8 Oct 2007
New developments and advancements in informational technology bring about several alternative avenues for educators to select in supporting and evaluating their students' learning. Online portfolio is a fairly new technique in this regard. As the online education grows, use of online portfolio becomes more vital for educational programs. At Virginia Tech, in the program of Instructional Technology Master's of Art Degree (ITMA), an online portfolio evaluation course is designed with the goals of reviewing and evaluating students' achievements throughout their master's degree education as well as evaluating the program itself. Evaluation standards put forward by Association for Educational Communication and Technology (AECT) are used as a framework in developing this course. In this presentation, we first discuss types and content of portfolios and design principles for creating portfolios. Next, we describe the portfolio evaluation course and explain briefly evaluation processes involved in the course. We then discuss AECT standards and how the portfolio evaluation course was informed by these standards. Succeeding the close examination of this course and its use for the Virginia Tech case, we discuss which regulations and standards should be considered in order to successfully apply this online portfolio evaluation course in educational institutions in Turkey.
