OER Glue -- a useful tool

When we talk about technology in the eportfolio community of practice, our reference is almost inevitably to single platforms or, in some cases, a platform with more than one module. In both cases, however, the architecture of concern is within the application.

However, another perspective on technology that is important to our community is that the Web itself is the architecture of concern. This is an important distinction for eportfolio advocates: the social Web mirrors in its physical structure the social structure of knowledge.

An example of OER Glue, which I just wrote about in my most recent Campus Technology article: OER Glue allows students to link to open educational resources on the Web and make that link "live." That is, the link will always be to the resource as it evolves, as people change it over time. It allows students to create a Web page with links to artifacts in the portfolio combined with (mashed or remixed) resources on the Web.

More than just a portfolio platform is necessary to portfolio practice: authoring tools, organizing tools, search, applications to manage "high-impact practices."

Helen Barrett has written and talked extensively about using Web 2.0 tools for portfolio practices. OER Glue is one more of those tools.
