Each task has an SPB – (Specific Project Brief) Each SPB is made up of short tasks All tasks are required in the e-portfolio and are therefore assessed components. At each stage there is a tick symbol if it is an assessed component or a blue arrow for a background task. The SPB also has “Mark Alerts”. An online tick sheet that breaks the task into smaller components so you can check that you have done everything needed.
As part of the course you can use: Video Cameras Voice Recorders Digital Cameras Scanned Images These can actually make up part of the written work Everything is stored electronically
NO PAPER – All work in completed and assessed on the computer You take “control” of your own coursework as part of the course you have to plan and complete a personal project log No exam Will be able to do work through the new VLE Learn new skills
This is one of the most important parts of the overall project. The e-portfolio holds all your work and makes it easy to access for marking and reviewing. It must be suitable for a teacher or an external moderator to use; to look at your work.
