HAN University and bulb Digital Portfolio established a partnership to provide a space to support students in the School of Education, with a way to record experiences, assignments, and resources in a more organized fashion.
HAN University of Applied Sciences is a research-oriented institution with campus locations in Arnhem and Nijmegan, Netherlands that offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees to over 35,000 students. HAN is one of the largest applied science universities in the Netherlands and continues to expand by establishing multiple partnerships with other universities and institutions all over the world.
HAN was searching for an organized way to display recorded experiences, assignments and resources while also being able to control who could see their portfolio content.
The School of Education at HAN utilizes bulb’s organized Digital Portfolio layout to allow Trainee teachers to document and creatively display content throughout their training programs during their time in school. The ability to collage their work in a wide range of multimedia formats allows students to display their growth in ways that suit their teaching and learning styles.
With bulb, our university students are the owners of their content. They can express their skills and experiences in an attractive package, both during and after their time at HAN.

HAN students particularly enjoy being in control of who can view and interact with their portfolio content, and how their portfolios are not accessible to anyone who they do not specifically grant access to. Tutors are able to leave formative feedback through the in-page commenting feature, and Templates within bulb provide students with beneficial information and structure for their work which aids their success.
HAN University’s School of Education continues to use bulb to track activities that students complete throughout their educational programs. With continued access to assignments and projects after graduation, content within the digital portfolios are used by students to evidence their experience as they apply for their first postgraduate teaching positions.
bulb is used by students and educators to create, curate and showcase their passions, growth and best school work. bulb Digital Portfolios started as a tool for students to show they’re more than a test score. As the product has grown, it has turned into a global hub where students, professionals, and individuals showcase their skills through beautiful, multimedia content on an incredibly easy-to-use platform.
