I’m sure this is not news to anyone actively working on portfolio projects, but it just came across my desk. Apparently the OSPI project released their source code on July 30th.
“Formed in January 2003, the Open Source Portfolio Initiative (OSPI) is a collaborative, open-source, software development project based on the University of Minnesota Enterprise System’s electronic portfolio software. The initial OSPI core group, consisting of the University of Minnesota (U of MN), University of Delaware, and the r-smart group, founded this collaborative to open the evolution of the U of MN ePortfolio to diverse input, rapid development, and widespread use.”
An online demo of the current system is available. There is promise that the next version will be both IMS and OKI compliant. – SWL
