E-Portfolios are personalized, on-line collections of individuals’ works that are chosen to represent their knowledge, skills and interests to diverse audiences. By digitizing their work and developing and managing their own personal e-portfolio websites, they receive hands-on experience with a wide variety of technologies that they might not have had access to previously. Find out how e-portfolios are used in a variety different ways across campus.
