What is Digication?

Digication is an e-Portfolio tool for students to showcase and share their work online with their family, friends, teachers, and potential employers. Within Digication students and faculty can create e-Portfolios for various reasons. These e-Portfolios can then be shared with instructors, courses, departments, or the community.

You can access Texas A&M - San Antonio's instance of Digication here...

How can an e-Portfolio help me?

E-Portfolios are a great way for students and staff to gather artifacts of their work in one convenient place. An e-Portfolio can contain written works, photos, videos, collaborative assignments, projects, or reflective pieces. For example, a student could use an e-Portfolio to showcase their work for one particular course, and the instructor could then use the e-Portfolio as an assessment grade.

E-Portfolios can also follow a student throughout their entire university experience. This is a great way for students to gather work samples for potential future employment.

Faculty members can use an e-Portfolio to highlight their accomplishments or publish data required by the state. This is also a great way for faculty to show the community what their work is all about.

Alumni Support

Alumni who used Digication during their time here at A&M - San Antonio, can continue to access Digication post graduation.
