"Hot on Twitter"

I just finished a Classroom 2.0 webinar on Interactive ePortfolios, and there was some technical problem with my slides, so they started to use my SlideShare version. (For the first time in years, I printed out my slides... good thing! Paper? Oh, well... it all worked out.) I received the following email from Slideshare during my presentation:
"Classroom2.0" is being tweeted more than any other document on SlideShare right now. So we've put it on the homepage of SlideShare.net (in the "Hot on Twitter" section).

Well done, you!

- SlideShare Team
Wow... 15 minutes of fame!

UPDATE on 9/22:  Another email from SlideShare:
Your presentation is currently being featured on the SlideShare homepage by our editorial team.

We thank you for this terrific presentation, that has been chosen from amongst the thousands that are uploaded to SlideShare everday.

Congratulations! Have a Great Day!,

Hello from Moore College of Art and Design! We are beginning to grapple with this concept of ePortfolios. They certainly seem to be dynamic tools for students. From an administrative angle we are looking into products/tools that could help us assess whether learning objectives are being met. Furthermore, our students need tools that support the many formats of their artifacts. Can you point us toward any helpful resources, publications?

Have you found my website (http://electronicportfolios.org)? On my website, I have a variety of resources to help you find tools, including Frequently Asked Questions. I propose that you may be looking for two different tools: one for the student to support learning and showcasing their accomplishment; another for the institution to collect data about achievement. In my experience, especially in terms of visual representation, there are unacceptable tradeoffs when these two purposes are combined in one tool.
