What is an e-portfolio?

An e-portfolio is a web-based information management system that uses electronic media and services. The learner builds and maintains a digital repository of artefacts, which they can use to demonstrate competence and reflect on their learning. Having access to their records, digital repository, feedback and reflection students can achieve a greater understanding of their individual growth, career planning and CV building. Accreditation for prior or extra-curricular experiences, a sense of control over how they are represented and direction over what is shown makes the e-portfolio a powerful tool.
