Synopsis: Desire2Learn unveils a new feature-rich ePortfolio that tracks and provides insight into a users' comprehensive progress from primary and secondary schools, to post secondary education, and beyond

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - Desire2Learn Inc., today unveils ePortolio, a much anticipated new product that enables users to track, record, and reflect upon their progress from K-12, to post-secondary education and beyond. An ePortfolio is a digital repository of artifacts that demonstrates progress and achievement. Pairing social networking and informal learning with the traditional classroom, Desire2Learn ePortfolio provides users and institutions with a customized and personalized learning journey.

"We are very excited to launch ePortfolio. With extensive input from our clients and intense research and development over the past four years, this product is responsive to individual user and institutional needs. Our innovative ePortfolio is shaped by the needs of our considerable client base," stated John Baker, Desire2Learn President & CEO. "With ePortfolio we are making great strides in breaking down the barriers to learning. ePortfolio captures the richness of a user's journey throughout their lifetime. The initial response to Desire2Learn ePortfolio has been outstanding."

"At Oral Roberts University, we have a compelling vision to operationalize an integrated toolset for collecting, aggregating, analyzing, and reporting assessment data and information using the Desire2Learn learning management system," said Dr. Marty Crossland, Associate Dean of Online Academic Services, Oral Roberts University. "We believe that student assessment must occur within the toolset, across courses, programs and the institution and also encompass external validation such as professional testing, certification, licensure, alumni surveys and even alumni employer surveys. With the addition of the new Desire2Learn ePortfolio to their eLearning suite, I believe Desire2Learn has the potential to be the most powerful and most integrated toolset for assessment across all levels of the institution."
