LodeStar Integrates with eFolioWorld Portfolio


LodeStar Learning this week announced a new partnership with eFolioWorld to integrate its electronic learning authoring suite, LodeStar, with the eFolioWorld electronic portfolio system. eFolioWorld is a hosted portfolio system developed jointly by ed tech provider Avenet and the Minnesota State College and Universities System.

The LodeStar authoring suite is designed to allow educators--both K-12 and post-secondary--to create Web-based educational activities that can be accessed through a learning management system or via external sites. It provides starter templates to which educators can add multimedia content, including interactive presentations, enhanced podcasts, audio, video, and other types of media. Through the new partnership, these tools have been reconfigured so that they can be integrated within the eFolioWorld environment.

The hosted eFolioWorld solution runs about $3 to $5, depending on enrollment. It's used by a number of higher education institutions and programs ad has been adopted most recently by Minnesota College of Business, Passaic Community College, Hawkeye Community College, Kankakee Community College, Case Western Reserve University Master of Public Health Program, and Southern Arkansas University Tech.
