Wikis > e-Portfolio

An e-portfolio (also electronic, online or digital portfolio) is a collection or aggregation of digital resources that captures and stores online the experiences, progress and achievement of individuals throughout a series of activities such as academic programs, experiential learning or career development that is presented or shared with a specifically selected audience. Such electronic evidence may include text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, hyperlinks, etc. e-Portfolios are both demonstrations of the user’s abilities and platforms for self-expression, and can be maintained dynamically over time. They are used to prepare for a job search or for career advancement. e-Portfolios are now taking the place of the traditional paper-based portfolios. They are often accompanied by a reflective component.
