manage several hundred student e-portfolios in the arts (dance, music, theater, and visual arts).
e-portfolio is a terrific tool for instruction and measuring student growth in the arts. Older students can create and manage their portfolios which is a great advantage for feasibility. Young children can not and this coupled with the fact that an elementary arts teacher may have several hundred students creates a large workload and limits the use of this great tool. There are platforms for e-portfolio (Mahara is an example) but they don't address this issue.

There's a Baltimore-based company that's doing something along these lines: http://FolioSprout.com
Rob, their founder, will be at the event on Saturday morning through Sunday. Let's have you meet him.
