The Portfolio tool is located at portfolio.utwente.nl. It can be used to track student progress throughout their entire programme. It was developed at the UT for tracking professional skills-based assignments.

Coordinator: The person who manages the portfolio. The coordinator can create topics, create portfolios, define portfolio groups, and create assignments. There can be more than one coordinator per programme.
