John C. Ittelson

John was a co-founder of the EPAC community of practice with Helen and served as an EDUCAUSE fellow in 2000, researching early e-portfolio activities. He was also on the chancellor’s planning committee for the establishment of CalStateTEACH, an 18-month teacher certification program delivered both online and with mentor teachers. John views e-portfolios as a major step forward in education, as they take the concept of a transcript from a sheet with class listings and grades to a dynamic place where a student can electronically collect a set of artifacts and evaluate, analyze, and reflect on them. He is also co-chair of a sub-committee of PESC focusing on developing standards for e-portfolios.
