Electronic Portfolio Initiatives at Virginia Tech facilitates the use of electronic portfolios throughout the university. The ePortfolio project is an effort at improving education, learning assessment, and student engagement by using collaborative online tools that take advantage of the latest technology. ePortfolios offer ways to showcase individual skills, student learning, and professional development.
The ePortfolio project is being coordinated by a team in Learning Technologies. These pages introduce you to the efforts of this team, as well as some reasons you may want to consider ePortfolio to improve your teaching and learning.
Portfolios have been used for decades in education as a tool for sharing and reflecting. ePortfolios re-enliven that process by adding to the mix the digital technologies that allow for multi-media presentations and easier (and vaster) data collection.
These pages are an overview of "Folio Thinking," with some information about why ePortfolio can enhance your educational experiences.
