We are battling with IT to have Mahara setup college wide. They want us to use Sharepoint!
To better make our case I was looking for a good set/list of user stories or scenarios.
|Story||... so that / Reason|
|As a student I want to create a online eportfolio||I can chart my personal development|
|As a student I want to create a online eportfolio||I can show potential employers what I have been doing and why I'm sutiable for a role|
|As a student I want to share my work with peers||my work and be reviewed.|
|As a teacher I want to access eportfolios||To mark them for assessment|
|As teacher I want to write comments||to leave feedback for my students|
Does anyone have anything like this that might cover creation, assessment, sharing etc.

I have recently been working with colleagues to record their reasons for using Mahara/myPortfolio. I have recently left the uni where I was working, and the videos are still in draft - but please take a look here:
I haven't been promoting them as yet as there is still some work to be done, but please have a look :) I'm presenting at the Mahara Hui in NZ next month where I'll be sharing more stories (hope it's being recorded?).
PS - SharePoint has its uses, but not for an eportfolio imho ...

Maybe you can have a look at the EUfolio project outcomes (http://eufolio.eu/). April 22nd there will be the end-conference for this project.The outcomes from this project will include case studies, portfolio exemplars, a policy makers manual, a technical specification manual and various other resources.
Main project outcomes:
- EUfolio Review of existing ePortfolio Policies and Practices (Report)
- EUfolio Process Specification
- Open Source ePortfolio Platform (Mahara)
- Microsoft based ePortfolio Platform (SharePoint)
- Teacher CPD Resources
- School Case Studies
- Examplar ePortfolios
- Trans-national peer-to-peer online network of pilot schools and teachers
- EUfolio Policymaker’s Manual
@Sam, what are in your opinion the main reasons why SharePoint is not suitable as an ePortfolio-platform?
