Why Use ePortfolios?
ePortfolio as a High-Impact Educational Practice allows instructors to assess the learning experience in a space that allows you to see the learning process as students interact in the ePortfolio environment. ePortfolios can serve as a classroom, a space to brainstorm or collect thoughts, or even as a collaborative space for group projects.
An ePortfolio is a space where one can collect and curate a digitalized collection of artifacts geared towards a certain purpose and a particular audience. ePortfolio’s are driven by the creator and artifacts can include a variety of mediums, such as text-based works, graphics, audio tracks, and/or multimedia elements. Folio-thinking encourages students to connect all aspects of learning including the process and the learning that happens both within and outside of the classroom. Portfolios allow students to focus on what they know, how they know it, how to apply it and where it fits in the world. (Chen and Mazow, 2002; Chen Cannon, Gabrio, and Leifer, 2005; Chen, 2009)
ePortfolios are also employed for Promotion and Tenure submission.
