ePortfolios are a tool and learning process for deepening student learning.
In their ePortfolios, students select evidence of their learning, reflect on that learning, and make connections between their courses, and between their academic work and other learning experiences. In many programs, students also draw connections between their academic work and the specific competencies that the program is targeting. Recent research has affirmed the efficacy of ePortfolios.
Administrators can also use student ePortfolios to assess the effectiveness of their curriculum.
