Bob, Lucy and Jeff,
Thanks for sharing the demo. I will be anxious to hear more about its 
use at NYU as well as the additional functionality Lucy mentions below. 
I am very curious how the various uses will be integrated in the OAE.

I understand that this will not be terribly expensive, but beyond our budget now. We have always had the goal of at least offering multiple options for visual representation.

Soon we'll have a screencast of a self-representational portfolio that we've created for our Wagner school just using templating native to OAE. We will also be integrating a commercially licensed portfolio tool used by NYU-AD and our career center. What we want to show is that portfolio can be a multifaceted functionality in OAE, tied together by the underlying Content store, Assessment service, Discussion service, etc.. There is no need for there to be only one type of portfolio to which everyone must bend their needs.
