The LEI Aloha project at the University of Hawaii has developed a digital learning environment to host electronic portfolio learning objects. A multimedia shell was created to deploy interactive modules designed to assist College of Education faculty and students in creating electronic portfolios. A flexible design was used to accommodate a wide range of learning styles and competency levels. Also, modular approach was used that incorporated a number of topic specific learning objects that could also be re-purposed for use in a broad range of database formats. Modules were designed with learner-centered features to promote constructivist learning while still allowing for structured and directed learning to take place. One-on-one testing of the prototype module with Educational Technology yielded positive results and constructive feedback. Field-testing of the module will be conducted in Spring 2004 with teacher education students and data will be used to determine effectiveness and implications for broader applications.
