D2L is working on a portfolio for students and faculty. I'm not sure if
that fits what you are talking about.

Subject: [CIO] Software solutions for faculty annual reports
Does anybody have experience with web-based reporting tools that help
professors track their academic progress (such courses taught, papers
written, grants received, etc.)?
I have long thought my institution would benefit from putting faculty
annual reports online. I find our current (paper-based) process
tedious, and it fails to really leverage the data captured in a way
that supports core administrative functions (such as promotion
reviews, internal assessments and accreditation activities).
I'm trying to get a feel for what solutions are out there already. I
have heard about various in-house projects (at Johns Hopkins, Duke and
Virginia Tech), which had varying degrees of success. Also, I know
about the "one size fits all" Sedona application, and I'm curious if
schools have found that useful.
If you have any information about other projects (both internal or
commercial), I would greatly appreciate learning about them. If you
deployed such a system at your school, please let me know how it went
and what pitfalls I should avoid!
I will be more than happy to compile responses for the rest of the
group if people reply directly to me.
