Chalk and Wire

Students who enroll in one of the following in academic year 2014-15 are required to have a Chalk & Wire ePortfolio license. A one-time, nonrefundable fee of $95 will be assessed on the first course registered for:

  • Students enrolled in any undergraduate or graduate education courses;
  • Students enrolled in any 300- or 400-level social work courses;
  • Students enrolled in any 300- or 400-level business/management courses; and

If a student registers for more than one course that fits the above criteria, they will only be charged one time. The license is valid for all three areas of study: education, business administration and social work. The license for Chalk & Wire is valid for four years.

  • Create and design electronic portfolios to document professional growth and target a particular type of position or career path;
  • Upload documents, images, video and audio files to an unlimited storage library to use any time when building ePortfolios;
  • Submit assignments to specific faculty for review, grading and feedback;
  • Share, at your discretion, an entire portfolio or single page through a secure URL feature to faculty, friends, family and prospective employers; and
  • View assessment results.
