The system and method allows a user to share a portfolio with entities external to the learning management system, e.g. an employer, a potential employer, another learning institution, alumni, friends, family, any party interested in learning about the students achievements. A portfolio may store all of the materials a user has worked on for one or more courses. Portfolios may also include user progress toward achieving standards at a granular level, such as academic competencies. System users may be able to search for portfolios based on one or more competencies to identify users that are qualified in a particular field or skillset. Through the portfolio web site, a user can share portions of the portfolios with other users via a URL. The URL or internet address may be specific to a student or provide general access to student portfolios. The entity may need to supply credentials, including a username, password, or PKI to access the portfolio associated with the URL or internet address.

The system and method for quality assurance (QA) of educational institutions, programs, courses, services, and processes stores a QA framework associated with an educational QA review in a database. The QA framework comprises one or more Quality Components (QCs) such that each QC is associated with one or more Quality Indicators (QI). Each QI is defined as a statement related to an educational quality attribute. A QI evaluation template is presented to one or more QA reviewers over a network for evaluating each QI. The QI evaluation template is used by the one or more QA reviewers for entry of one or more Observation Information (OI) for a QI under evaluation and associating each OI with respective evidence information and recommendation information (RI). The RI is then prioritized based on one or more evaluative metrics.


A learning management system and method delivers an instructional material to a student workstation after authenticating an students entry into a learning session that is associated with a plurality of contacts. Stored electronic addresses in a database include a first electronic address that is associated with a first contact and a second electronic address that is associated with a second contact. The first contact is associated with the learning session and the second contact is not associated with the learning session. A first activity stream associated with the first contact and a second activity stream associated with the second contact is selectively displayed to the student such that upon detection of students entry into the learning session, the first activity stream is displayed without displaying the second activity stream and the second activity stream is displayed upon detection of students exit from the learning session either with displaying the first activity stream or without displaying the first activity stream.


A learning management system and method displays a learning environment for delivery of instructional material to a remote student workstation student after authenticating a student at the remote student workstation. The learning environment displays a user interface to the student on the remote student workstation used to interact with an instructional material when the student enters into a learning session associated with a course when messages are communicated to and from the student. Communicated messages with the student are monitored to determine whether a message contains an unauthorized content and upon detection of an unauthorized content, an alert message is transmitted, for example, to an student associated with the course or to the student.


A learning management system and method displays corresponding learning environments for delivery of instructional material to a plurality of geographically dispersed remote student workstations located in a plurality of regions after the learning system authenticates a corresponding plurality of students at the plurality of geographically dispersed remote student workstations. Each learning environment displays a user interface on a respective remote student workstation located in one region of the plurality of regions. At least one region profile stores information specifying a rule associated with communication of information between a first region and another second region. Messages are communicated amongst the geographically dispersed remote student workstations located in the plurality of regions in accordance with the region profile.


A learning management system and method that deliver instructional materials to a student stores electronic addresses for a plurality of contacts associated with the student. The student is associated with a set of students contacts comprising at least one student-selected contact and at least one mandatory contact. A student-selected contact comprises a contact designated by the student to be in the set of students contacts and a mandatory contact comprises a contact that is not designated by the student to be in the set of students contacts. A user interface is provided that enables the student to select between communication of messages with the student-selected contact and the mandatory contact.


A learning management system and method stores in a database a framework for a set of learning activities. The set of learning activities comprises a sequence of learning units that are associated with a reference calendar for completion of the learning activities relative to a reference date. The reference calendar specifies a reference due date for completing a learning activity associated with a learning unit of the sequence of learning units. The reference due date is relative to the reference date. A learning environment for delivery of instructional material associated with the sequence of learning units is displayed on a remote student workstation after the system authenticates a student at the remote student workstation. The displayed learning environment comprises a user interface that is displayed to the student on the remote student workstation. The user interface displays an actual due date, for example, in a calendar format, for completing the learning activity. The actual due date is derived from the reference due date.
