Digication review by <span>Griffin K.</span>

Digication is the most modern and simple application, if compared to websites from the 90's.

What do you like best?

I don't like anything about Digication, in fact I find every aspect of digitation not simple, easy, appealing, useful, modern, or applicable. I am required to use Digication for my portfolio and have had nothing but issues with it. Not to mention the ridiculously out of date page editing system that seems to have been taken from the first version of Microsoft Word.

What do you dislike?

Another complaint I have is how aesthetically disastrous this platform is. In an age of 5k graphics, There is no acceptation for a "new" platform to have pixelated graphics and absolutely zero appeal to design. From a students and millennials point of view, it doesn't deserve to have a place in education to business. I cannot understand how this website can be the mandatory platform for a professional portfolio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend going with another website building platform as Digication still has many bugs to figure out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To answer the above question, none. Digication is not solving any problems it in fact causing me problems, there has been three accidental deletions of my pages and work, not to mention countless compatibility problems with the outdated adobe flash.

Best option I've used so far in similar platforms

What do you like best?

Digication allows students at my institution to showcase their best work from all of their courses as well as present assignments to be examined for qualifying exams. The interface is attractive and the steps one takes to showcase their work is also intuitive. The student also has a large degree of autonomy in determining the privacy settings and who can view their work for how long.

What do you dislike?

There were some glitches with onboarding the platform. Some students mistakenly "hid" their work by dragging and dropping their work to the wrong area of the screen. It was difficult for instructors to catch this, and would sometimes lead to confusion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Provide clear instructions to users and be sure to use Digication's very friendly customer service!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our old platform was very difficult to use and not very pleasing to the eye. There were many differences in how students' work was presented that could lead to instructor based mistakes in grading. Digication helped us to streamline the grading and evaluation process and provides a product whose interface inspires instructors and students to integrate Digication not just into examinations but also into pedagogy.

Collection of Material

What do you like best?

The refined design of the program makes it look very sophisticated when you use it. It is not especially difficult to use once you have browsed through the features.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit of a learning curve, getting used to the set up of the program. The features can take some time to explore and get used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to take some time and set it aside to get used to the nature and set up of this program. It seems to be the future of setting up portfolios and collecting material and data to showcase, but it might also make physical art sort of obsolete to put in a portfolio. Technological advances are inevitable and as they have changed the face of art and media, this kind of program is bound to be born out of that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It enables you to collectively review material uploaded by other people. It can create essentially what it a digital portfolio.

A Tool for ePortfolios

What do you like best?

Digication is easy to access through Google. It is easy to browse through students ePortfolios. It provides a fairly streamlined place to access student reflections and ePortfolios. Allows for all of campus to learn about a student through their ePortfolio.

What do you dislike?

Digication for creating ePortfolios isn't intuitive or user friendly. Searching for a student's ePortfolio is also a headache. It's only possible to search by the title the student has given the ePortfolio or what they have named themselves. This makes finding all the students in a particular class challenging.

Digication does allow for some creative customization, but it does not have a user-friendly interface for customization, meaning the majority of our students do not put any effort into personalizing their ePortfolio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As an ePortfolio tool, I hope there are better options. Before my time we went through a needs assessment to decide what ePortfolio tool was best, and Digication was chosen. However, we are currently at a point where we are thinking of not requiring it. It is not a tool students are interested in using and many majors that need ePortfolios (Graphic Design, Fine Arts, Journalism, etc.) opt to use more aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly website builders.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our campus uses Digication to require students to create ePortfolios of their work through a common curriculum. The common curriculum extends throughout their four years on campus and the ePortfolios are a repository for their reflections and their academic work.

clunky interface; not intuitive for first-time users

What do you like best?

a lot of information can be uploaded to digication as a centralized resource. Different tabs can be set up, in a similar way to creating folders would operate if you were using Google classroom, that can house multiple files.

What do you dislike?

too time-consuming to get started using the platform; frustrating for a first time user. Additionally, there are emails or updates sent to let you know when relevant information has been uploaded that you need to see.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I had no choice but to use digication as a requirement for an a college class that I was adjuncting for this spring. I would not choose to use this platform again unless required to.

Digication Portfolio

What do you like best?

I liked the option to upload documents and photos to embed in the portfolio.

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product
