ePortfolios are both a tool for learning, and a record of learning (Barrett, H., 2010). With an ePortfolio you can record and reflect on your learning journey, saving (and exporting) the conceptual tools that will make you an effective, collaborative practitioner after you graduate. Using an ePortfolio promotes self-regulation, metacognitive awareness of how you learn most effectively, and supports your life-long learning as a professional in a fast changing environment.
An ePortfolio allows you to quickly assemble, and easily submit, a body of evidence for an assignment (as it is integrated with LEO), or send links to external organisations for accreditation, apply for a job, or submit a proposal for research projects. It also allows you to build peer networks, which will be your most effective learning support in the workplace.
