COBAL - Competency Based Learning

COBAL (Competency Based Learning) is a web application to manage and to keep record of students learning progress and their progress in different school projects.

It is designed as an interactive forum where they can note goals, reflect on objectives or achieved competencies as well as document successfull projects.
As it is interactive, it allows communication between students about their projects and thus to motivate each other. Teachers can take part too and evaluate their students individual progress.
For each project, the teacher can define curricular competencies the students have to achieve. By tagging specific items which indicate the achieved competencies, students will be able to keep record of their individual proceedings and share them with their fellow students.

  • eportfolio.cobal is developed in close collaboration with the LIS (Landesinstitut für Schule Bremen).
