  6. 6. So What Are They?<br />In education and training contexts, eportfolios are learner-centered and outcomes-based. They are created when individuals selectively compile evidence of their own electronic activities and output as a means to indicate what they have learned or know. In this sense, eportfolios function as a learning record or transcript. But given their developmental character, eportfolios function as both an archive and a developmental repository that is used for learning management and reflections purposes.<br />
