In this chapter the concept of portal task: an important aspect of contemporary learning that developing learning managers need to understand as fundamental to the learning design process is discussed. A "portal task" is a "knowing and doing" excerise that requires the learner to practice and then demonstrate acquired knowledge by applying it in a "real life" situation. This metaphor is used to define the meaning of portal taks. The chapter discusses portal tasks in the design of learning experiences.
