What Are ePortfolios?
Eportfolios showcase your student experience, allowing you to include evidence of learning not just from coursework, but from your daily life. Students are encouraged to submit artifacts in a variety of formats, and to integrate personal interests and talents with academic work. Eportfolios allow us to evaluate students as whole people, not just as assignments and grades. They also give you more control over what skills to showcase, and let you choose how to communicate that.
Are you more comfortable expressing yourself orally, instead of in writing? Record a video of yourself reflecting on your learning. Are you an artist, a musician, or an athlete? Incorporate those interests into your eportfolio to express what means the most to you.
If you've used facebook, or any other social networking tool, you've already got an eportfolio. The idea is the same; we just provide you with the tools and experience to create a similar digital identity that expresses your experience as a student.
