Feature tour

Let’s explore what features Portflow has to offer as a student-owned learning experience portfolio. How is the student self-directed learning is scaffolded and how authentic feedback leveraged?

Portflow follows your learning journey

The process of working with Portflow can be divided into four main steps, matching your learning journey:


Arrange and structure the portfolio through collections, representing learning contexts such as courses, projects, internships, or units of outcomes and add a touch of color.

Add learning outcomes and personal targets as goals and track your development progress.

Organize collections into sections (e.g. periods, phases or type of skills).

Apply templates created by teachers or programme coordinators to help structure the portfolio.


Upload new evidence of learning experiences and directly preview them in the portfolio, enabling quick feedback.

Import (graded) LMS assignment submissions from a course and not only the product(s), but also the authentic feedback from the teacher is included.

The iterative learning and improvement process is fully supported through multiple versions of evidence, whilst keeping sight of all feedback on earlier versions.

A student can determine who has access and for how long, harnessing ownership and ensuring privacy. Choose to share the entire portfolio or a specific collection.

Next to easy sharing with other users from within the LMS, external shares enable the inclusion of people outside the institution and their invaluable insights to be involved in the feedback process.

Through feedback requests, a student can ask for targeted feedback.

Through threaded comments, the feedback can be discussed in order to achieve mutual understanding.

Using rich formatting and attachments, feedback can be provided structured and enriched to optimize value and clarity.


View all activities in the timeline that acts as an audit trail for each goal and see what was done when.

During the learning process, students and their invitees can track their progress. By sending out progress review invites, both quantitative and qualitative data can gathered about their progress towards their goals. This data can then be aggregated into visualizations like timelines, progress graphs and web diagrams.


A student can create a locked copy (snapshot) of selected collections and evidence to prepare for submission. A locked copy can no longer be edited and can be used for summative assessment.

A locked copy can be submitted in an LMS assignment and be assessed in its Grader by a Teacher.

A locked copy can serve as a showcase portfolio that can be shared or embedded in other places.
