An e-portfolio is a learner-created collection of digital items: ideas, evidence, reflections, feedback, which presents a selected audience with evidence of a person's learning and/or ability.
‘e-Portfolio-based learning' – the process of planning, compiling, sharing, discussing, reflecting, giving and receiving feedback – is the focus of increasing attention because it is as important as the e-portfolio itself. e-Portfolio tools and systems can support learners in developing these processes.
JISC has been investigating a number of issues relating to the use of e-portfolio tools and systems, and technology-supported personal development planning (PDP) in a range of contexts for a range of purposes. See an overview of JISC's e-Portfolio activities
