This chapter examines the concept and the uses of electronic portfolios as pedagogical tools for adult learners, particularly in UK Higher Education, where it is part of the personal development plan (PDP) agenda on lifelong learning and widening participation. Its development relies on an environment that favours the learners’ active involvement in the learning process as well as learning outcomes through reflection and collaborative participation. A better understanding of the pedagogical implications of such portfolios and their learning processes is needed and will be discussed in this chapter.
