Cuaderno: Online Notebook and Writing Portfolio
Tuesday, November 18, 12:20-1:10 p.m.
Jones 35

Presenters: Frances Matos-Schultz, Pablo Viedma, and Jose Fernandez

The Spanish department has developed Cuaderno, a system for creating and managing web-based writing portfolios. Cuaderno is designed and programmed to be flexible and adaptable to different writing tasks and projects which both the instructor and learner are able to manipulate in a secure environment. Learners have access to multiple tools that enhance and facilitate their writing, such as multimedia, rubrics, tutorials and templates. The Cuaderno system is self-populating and scalable and requires minimal administrative intervention. Though initially developed for Spanish, the Cuaderno tools can accommodate different languages and levels. Come to this presentation to learn more about Cuaderno and how it might be useful in your language program!
