E-Portfolio Resources

Introduction

E-portfolios are digital archives of student learning, with learning artifacts, student reflections and peer or teacher feedback organized around learning outcomes. 

E-portfolios enhance learning, assess learning and showcase learning. 

E-portfolios enhance learning through student reflection on learning outcomes, helping students connect academic and personal experience.  E-portfolios provide specific examples of student learning connected to learning outcomes, thereby serving program and institution assessment needs.  Finally, and often of most importance to students, e-portfolios can be shared to demonstrate learning, acting as a 21st century resume.
