The next theme we are working on is covering privacy at an institution level. Our goal is to build out more ways to control the visibility and privacy of all users within your network at a global level. What this means is you can wall off your network from the larger Portfolium social network and maintain your own personal network just visible to your leaners.
As we start to prepare our upcoming work for Q3 I wanted to pause and take a look back on what the team has release thus far. Our goal for the first half of the year was to reduce the amount of overhead in managing common workflows, specifically around managing users and badges.
A few months ago we were looking for feedback on how to improve the workflows around importing user data into Portfolium. I'm pleased to announce we've shipped those features and made improvements to how you can handle user data imports through scheduling, better tools for data management as well as a new streamlined interface to gain insights on the progress during an import.

Portfolium Folios are a big improvement over the native Canvas ePortfolios in many ways, however it's important to note there ARE differences. Here are some of the more significant differences and similarities.
