Chalk & Wire

I. Welcome to the COE's Chalk and Wire Page. Below are a list of resources to assist you in purchasing, registering and setting up your chalk and wire account. The COE has prepared written and digital directions to assist you.

Chalk & Wire is a web based e-portfolio system required for all students in the College of Education. Using Chalk & Wire, our candidates can build an unlimited number of showcase or career-search portfolios while they are in school and long afterward. Their portfolios can demonstrate a single skill or multiple skills. They can showcase a collection of artifacts that reveal a variety of accomplishments, as well as display how they have fulfilled assignments. They can also reveal their reflections on assessments and benchmark performance tasks required throughout their academic and working careers.

Here are the written directions:

 Students:          Student CW TOC and Upload Instructions pdf
