Length: 1 portfolio with 3 pages – 1 page for each week as listed above containing 500 words ± 10% per week (not including references and citations)
Your portfolio should capture rich ideas, resources and innovative practice around Business Process Management within the context of the topics(Business Process Strategy & Organisational Processes and Structure, Business Process Performance Management & Business Process Management and Business Process Analysis & Business Process Modelling).
To develop and write a well-informed ePortfolio, you are to conduct an Internet research on the specified ePortfolio topics. Search for items related to each ePortfolio topic. The items you may include in the portfolio could be YouTube videos, clips from lectures and/or tutorials, relevant websites and your own work that you produce in the tutorials. You should review the items you find around the specified topic and select a minimum of 5 items for each week and add them to your portfolio.To start with, you need to create a portfolio on Mahara with 3 pages(i.e. 1 page for each of the weekly topics listed above) and each page should have 5 items with a justification for each item.
In the justification, firstly provide a brief summary of the chosen item and secondly outline why you chose the itemi.e. why you thought the item chosen was appropriate and/or relevant to the topic.Your justification for each item should be around 100 words (100 words for each item * 5 items = 500 words on each page).
Do not upload files from the Internet as you do not own copyright.If you do upload files without permission, this will be treated as plagiarism. You should provide hyperlinks to the files/webpages you refer to in your discussion.
In this assessment, Harvard referencing format and citations are to be used to substantiate your justification.Refer to this guide for help with Harvard referencing.
You will use Mahara (CQU Portfolio) to gather and present each weekly portfolio. Unfortunately, Mahara has not been fully integrated with Moodle, and therefore we will use Moodle to send you feedback on the marking.
The weekly portfolio is to be submitted by creating a Secret URL in Mahara and pasting the URL into Moodle for marking and feedback.
Details about how to create the Secret URL are on the COIT 20252 Moodle unit site.
Note:We will be using the CQU Portfolio in the Business Analysis unit that follows this one. You might want to consider gathering items into your portfolio that you can use in future. You can store items in your portfolio that are not shared with anyone or share a particular view with a specific group. In this way, you can build up many different views for many different purposes. It is a common practice for people to build a portfolio to share with prospective employers, which is one use of your portfolio. As with your blog, please remain objective in your evaluation of items you collect in the each of the views.
As Mahara is only available to you while studying at CQUni, you can export your portfolio when you have finished your studies or transfer it to one of many free portfolios.
All assignments will be checked for plagiarism (material copied from other students and/or material copied from other sources). If you are found to have plagiarised material or if you have used someone else’s words without appropriate referencing, or you have uploaded files without permission you will be penalised for plagiarism which could result in zero marks for the whole assignment. In some circumstances a more severe penalty may be imposed as per University policy.
