Abstract

This chapter explores research on ePortfolios from the perspective of defining, evaluating, and demonstrating value to enduring learning. It makes a case for the public/private container and the value to the learner of digital artifact creation, self-reflection, and presentation. It explores the use and challenges of ePortfolios in instruction and makes a case for the ePortfolio as an effective tool for knowledge creation. Finally, the authors examine the question of assessment in implementation of an enterprise ePortfolio: the value of learner assessment, peer and public assessment, and the need for institutional assessment of the ePortfolio.
