Using an ePortfolio for reflective learning
We are all familiar with the concept of a portfolio of work that demonstrates 'what we are capable of'. In an educational context, though, portfolios are also used to inform learning - by reflecting on the learning process itself. E-Portfolios update the concept of a traditional portfolio to the digital age by enabling a portfolio keeper to collect and display a series of digital artefacts as well as comment and reflect on the learning associated with their production.
