For: StaffApplication: QMplus HubTagged: modulemapping , QMplus Hub

This framework enables the skills that have been associated with elements of coursework, submitted in QMplus, to feed into QMplus Hub as a portfolio. The module code, the coursework title and mark automatically feed into the portfolio once they have been published in QMplus. It allows students to upload other evidence from activities outside coursework to their own portfolio which is stored and recorded for them to use whenever they require.
