Using Digication as a Course Management System (CMS)

The ePortfolio provider, Digication, has CMS capabilities such as the following:

  • Create announcements that students can visit at any time including attachments (these can also be sent as email notifications during the creation process)
  • Create discussion boards where students can engage in one to everyone or one to one discussions with instructors
  • Take attendance
  • Access students’ ePortfolios
  • Deposit assessment (if a course requires it)
