      • Formative and summative assessment opportunity for instructors and learners.
      • “ A portfolio permits the learner to display competence , outside of a static transcript. ” Siemens, G. (2004, December 16). ePortfolios. eLearnSpace. Retrieved February 26, 2008 from http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/eportfolios.htm
  • 15. Five ePortfolio Recommendations
    • Allow learners alternatives in choice of medium.
    • Assure the medium is accessible by classmates and you for review and evaluation.
    • Be flexible and let students adapt for other portfolios (e.g., Program level or Institutional Level portfolios)
    • Use a rubric that maps performances with the outcomes.
    • Conduct a formative review .
  • 16. Forms of ePortfolio
    • All portfolios are “ … driven by the intended task: assessment, professional/personal development, learning portfolio, or group portfolio. ” (Siemens, G. (2004, December 16).
    • Limited Portability
      • Remain with institutions/programs or become fee-based.
      • Interface is “fixed” by program (cannot be exported to other mediums)
      • FERPA/Privacy Considerations
      • Example: Blackboard Portfolio
    • Infinite Portability
      • Housed on the Web and managed by users.
      • FERPA/Privacy Considerations
      • Examples: FaceBook , MySpace, Wikis, Blogs, & SecondLife

Student privacy is an issue when using technologies external to your institution’s servers. Know your institution’s policies.
  • 18. Wikis
    • Allows for quick content creation and editing
    • Contributory or collaborative
    • Vary in complexity (e.g., PBWiki, MediaWiki)
    • Wiki comparison http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_wiki_software
