The School of Education at Granite State College uses TaskStream, a web-based software that offers an interactive suite of tools for creating, organizing, tracking, and sharing lessons, rubrics, electronic portfolios, assessments, and web pages. When using the e-portfolio tools, students are able to build media-rich online portfolios showcasing their learning achievements that they can share with peers, instructors, and employers for feedback and assessment; and maintain portable samples of work products and accomplishments even after the student graduates. With TaskStream you can stay organized with one centralized place to create, submit, share, and store all of your work online.
