Hi all,

    The University of Michigan is also looking at Sakai 3 portfolio  
development. During March 2010, MPortfolio will be prototyping our  
“expressive portfolio” model within Sakai 3. The goal of this exercise  
is to gain experience and assess functionality in the Sakai 3  
environment.  If you have questions about this work, please contact eportteam at umich.edu
