Design your own portfolio process!
An open source software, Karuta is a flexible tool for the incremental prototyping and the diffusion on the web of digital portfolios or eportfolios for various purposes (showcase portfolio, learning portfolio, assessment portfolio).
The T&L designer can quickly build a portfolio template by creating pages and adding different resources (text, documents, comments, etc.) assigned to various roles (student, evaluator, etc.).
Karuta has no a priori structure. The T&L designer has full control and can build sophisticated portfolios and workflows. No developers are required.
Karuta is built for quick iterations. Design a portfolio, test it in faculty meetings, make changes, run a small pilot.
Karuta has advanced features like proxies, parts (for creating user menus), and peer evaluation. A script language is available for batch creation. New features will be available soon like reporting, LEAP2A exporting, HTML publishing, resume, etc.
Karuta can be used for learning portfolios, assessment portfolios, accreditation, and presentation portfolios (coming soon).
