The Dual-T project investigates ICT-supported learning scenarios in vocational training to improve integration between school and workplace. We shall report deployment and usability issues from our initial experience using the ELGG social software with dental care assistants. We report how we had to adapt some of platform’s functionalities and interface to cope with simple pedagogical scenarios. We shall present some provisional design rules for an e-portfolio approach to classroom activities and formulate some desiderata for future developments.
