ePortfolios

ePortfolios, or electronic portfolios, are a collection of evidence, work or information stored online, that shows the development of your learning, knowledge, skills and abilities over time. Evidence can be stored in different file formats including text, image, video and audio files. They can be kept as part of a course or subject, or can span across an entire field of study, e.g. a plumbing apprenticeship or an engineering degree, to show evidence of your learning and skills development over time.

ePortfolios are often used for the following purposes:

  • reflection and personal development
  • assessment
  • work and career development.

Regardless of the purpose of your ePortfolio, it belongs to you and can be used to store, share and present your achievements.
