This chapter outlines the implementation of electronic portfolio technology as part of a university initiative to improve learning. The implementation of electronic portfolios, via Epsilen Software, is discussed in terms of key features deemed necessary by Bowling Green State University’s assessment committee. One of the key features of the software is the matrix. This matrix is discussed in terms of its use for documenting student learning on the university’s learning outcomes. Reactions from current users are also provided. The chapter concludes by providing the current status of electronic portfolio usage at the university and a discussion of future plans for the software.
