What is Digication?
Digication is an online ePortfolio tool that allows students, faculty, or staff to create a digital portfolio of their work.
The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has indentified ePortfolios as a high impact practice (HIP) that creates "unique opportunities for connection and synthesis across courses, semesters, and co-curricular experiences, enabling students to reflect on and construct a cohesive signature learning experience and authentic body of work." (Watson, C. E., Kuh, G., Rhodes, T., Penny Light, T., & Chen, H. L. (2016). Editorial: ePortfolios-The eleventh high impact practice. International Journal of ePortfolio, 6(2), 65-69.)
