What are ePortfolios & WebFolios?
ASTD's February 2005 E-Learning Network News (an eNewsletter for ASTD's eLearning SIG members) has a fantastic article written by George Siemens entitled ePortfolios. He gives a primer on what ePortfolios/WebFolios are and how they are being used. He defines the term "eportfolio" through a reference (ePortfolio Portal, 2004). It reads, "An eportfolio is a web-based information management system that uses electronic media and services. The learner builds and maintains a digital repository of artifacts, which they can use to demonstrate competence and reflect on their learning.
