Chapter 15: 2008 E-Portfolios

E-portfolios provide a digital means of gathering together a range of outputs, assessments, and resources for a student. The argument for e-portfolios is a compelling one — they provide a place to store all the evidence a learner gathers to exhibit learning, both formal and informal, in order to support lifelong learning and career development. It is an idea that has significant impact for education — instead of recognizing education at the level of qualification, such as a degree in a particular subject, it allows a more granular recognition of specific skills, linked to evidence. This chapter is read by Julian Prior.
