Abstract

The electronic portfolio is a new arrival on the educational scene. E-portfolios are much more portable and versatile than their paper-based counterparts. This flexibility has already led to a wide range of educational applications, from development and reflection to assessment and showcasing. These new approaches complement and build on recent developments within e-learning such as the move to social computing, blogs and wikis. However, these opportunities also introduce complexity into any e-portfolio implementation.

This book presents the reader with a realistic, research-informed view of a complex and developing area of practice.
