Students will have access to ePortfolios following a successful campus pilot

 

eportfolio-FIUPortfolium.com, an ePortfolio network, has announced a campuswide rollout of its ePortfolio platform for all Florida International University (FIU) students following a successful pilot with the FIU Chaplin School of Hospitality.

This expansion extends Portfolium’s reach into one of the largest universities in the United States.

“FIU’s Chaplin school was an early adopter of the Portfolium platform. Following a painless rollout, Chaplin saw high adoption by students, and got encouraging feedback from both students and faculty; all in agreement that Portfolium filled a key gap between college and career. It made obvious sense for FIU to move forward in launching this service to benefit all students, campus-wide,” said Bridgette Cram, Student Success Manager, Office of the Provost at FIU.

As part of the agreement with FIU, over 44,000 students have been provided with free ePortfolios.

Since launching just over a week ago, students have collectively added over 286,000 unique data points (including 25,000 skills), all of which make Portfolium’s recruiting search engine and matching technology smarter and more effective, including for employers seeking qualified job candidates.

“We’re proud of our partnership with FIU for many reasons. One that stands out for me is the constant feedback I receive from employers, all of whom hold FIU in high regard. Unlocking access to talented FIU students will be a huge win for recruiters and hiring managers searching for top entry-level talent,” said Adam Markowitz, founder and CEO of Portfolium.
