What is an ePortfolio?

  • a place to store learning artifacts (papers, multimedia, reflections, study plans).
  • most often shared through a web-based interface.
  • usually an attempt to organize artifacts to showcase learning objectives, progress, and competency, depending on who the intended audience will be.

This site is a collection of tools and resources to help you create and manage your ePortfolio.
