Managing Learning Evidence Using ePortfolio

Abstract

This paper introduces ePortfolio and its use of managing learning evidence in an eLearning environment. The paper uses the outcomes of a recent project sponsored by Deakin University, Australia and examples from IT teaching practice based on CloudDeakin to explore how ePortfolios add value to personalized and reflective models of eLearning. ePortfolios are proved to be an effective tool for discussion, information collection and reflection, and new ways of thinking about learning evidence management.
