Excellent post Patrick and really interesting to hear how different institutions are using In-Folio. I particularly like the collaborative nature of the work with other colleges which is then evidenced in the students In-Folio accounts.

I have been involved in working with some Scottish FE colleges who are using In-Folio in some really interesting ways and I plan to share your article with them. It is excellent to see how a 'community of practice' is emerging with the different ways that people are using In-Folio with learners.

If you are interested in hearing what tutors and students thought of In-Folio, you can read more about the Scottish FE Colleges In-Folio pilot here - http://tiny.cc/InFolioPilots .

Pete this is a great case study and we at TechDis are delighted that the college are using Infolio to increase the skills of both the learners and staff. I really like the idea of using a Personal Learning Plan with InFolio that allows students to monitor their own targets and objectives. It has become clear to us that different colleges have used Infolio for a wide range of objectives such as person centred planning, accreditation or as a record of achievement. If you look at the case study that Margaret McKay has highlighted the 5 colleges in Scotland used it successfully in 5 very different ways.

Both Deeside College, the Scottish Colleges and many others are using a version of InFolio which is hosted by JISC TechDis. In this way we are able to offer training and support as needed. It is such a delight to see students using the system to record and share their experiences of college, work and leisure. So thanks again Pete for sharing the unique way that Deeside College are using a very flexible system.
