Chen-Wilson, Lisha, Blowers, Rob, Gravell, Andrew and Argles, David (2009) Towards an secured e-Certificate System for use in e-Portfolios At International conference on Multimedia and Information and Communucation Technologies in Education (m-ICTE 2009), Portugal. 22 - 24 Apr 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Abstract

E-Portfolios are being explored as an improvement over paper-based portfolios in the job and course application process. To be a true replacement for physical portfolios, e-Portfolios need to include an on-line version of certificates of the applicant's attainment. However, these “e-Certificates” present a number of practical challenges, so the validation of certificates of attainment which the students are presenting has not been addressed until now. This paper addresses the issues at stake, explores the gap between current e-Portfolio tools and an e-Certificate system, and presents an approach which solves the related problems. The recommendations from this research provide a reference from which e-Certificate implementations can be developed facilitating up take of e-Portfolio tools.
