Reviews & Statements

This book is more a record of the spread of North American educational practices across several global regions and of significant enrichments of those practices as they are integrated into national and local educational systems than it is of a syncretic reimagining of the eportfolio tradition.

– Darren Cambridge, George Mason University, USA

The book gives a wide overview of the e-portfolio and its usage. It presents and discusses its use as a learning and assessment tool and serves as a handy reference when entering the job market or for career development. It is recommended both for teachers and researchers seeking information on the use of e-portfolios in higher education.
