Students have to present themselves better than ever. After the student's formal education has finished, employers and clients expect to see insight into the skills of a person and want to know what to expect from a candidate. Educational institutions are expected to give skills a permanent place in the curriculum. This is why the online portfolio of Simulise makes those skills transparent for students and teachers -both during school time and afterwards.
The world is changing rapidly. When students complete their education, the labour market will have developed requirements different to those that were apparent when the students started studying. To prepare students properly for this, it is essential to make their skills visible. With an online portfolio these skills are more visible to the outside world. This means that students can show their specific talents. Thus education becomes better, more transparent and future-proof.

Students become responsible for their own development. They choose their own learning paths, making the existing curriculum more meaningful to them. The teacher guides the students to set final goals and assists in the development of skills.
The feeling that you hold your future into your own hands: this motivates and encourages students tremendously. A portfolio for your lifetime is extra valuable. It makes clear that it is important to invest in your development because you do have a lifetime benefit.
You learn the most important lessons from other people. Online cooperation is an important aspect that provides insight into the student's learning process. The Social Stream ensures that students can track and motivate each other.
