Creating and managing an ePortofolio with DoIT

Brief description

The students create their own ePortfolio (a file or workbook). The lecturers set a thematic structure for this, track progress of students’ work and give feedback.

What is the objective?

  • Intensive involvement with the learning/work process
  • Organisation and documentation of workflow, idea generation processes, research steps and materials
  • Self-directed, reflective learning
  • Reflection/feedback
  • Cross-border proof of qualification, mobility


Activate DoIT in the Stud.IP course under “+”. Then create a portfolio structure (with topics and tasks) under “DoIT”. At the same time change the name “DoIT” shown in the menu bar under “Options” to “Portfolio”.

Under “Results” there is a summary table of information on activities (students’ answers/notes/files as well as files/feedback from the lecturers). You can also input deadline extensions for individual students in this screen. Regular feedback has a positive effect on the motivation and successful learning of the students.


The students’ work can be downloaded under the file tab “Results” organised by topic, user or as a general survey.

The topic structure and tasks can be transferred to another course.

The students can transfer the content they have developed into their personal portfolio.
