How Learning Assistant works

With the Learning Assistant e-portfolio system users connect and interact within a fully supported and collaborative virtual learning environment.

Rather than working with bulky paper portfolios, learners and assessors access a web-based e-portfolio that contains all their relevant course materials. Learners upload evidence to the system allowing those involved in the learning process to plan, give feedback, assess, verify and finally award the qualification.

Smart and functional portfolio building, assessment and communication tools and a host of added value features support and enhance the process, improving the educational experience for all users.
