What Is an E-Portfolio?
In academia, an e-Portfolio is an electronic collection of evidence that demonstrates a student’s “learning journey” over time. Typically, evidence contained in an e-Portfolio consists of a variety of electronic artifacts, including text, images, and rich media. An e-Portfolio often serves as both a method of demonstrating a student’s abilities and knowledge and as a means of self expression. e-Portfolios are also often used for assessment–of a student’s comprehension, skills, and growth, but also of academic programs and departments, even entire campuses.
An e-Portfolio is an easy way to for students to organize and share their work with others while tracking their learning throughout their time at Boise State. Creating an e-Portfolio gives students an opportunity to demonstrate their experiences and coursework better than a one-page resume can. An e-Portfolio can give students a competitive edge when applying for internships, employment, or graduate school.
