e-Portfolios

Overview

An e-portfolio is an electronically-based portfolio system which is modelled on the working method used for paper portfolios. It consists of a system and process that enables secure, computer based verification and assessment evidence. The use of
e-portfolios in assessment has been adopted by many awarding bodies and accepted by the regulators.

There are various types of e-portfolio systems ranging from a secure file storage function within a stand-alone system, to more sophisticated web-based products, or they may be part of a VLE. The centre may also decide to develop their own
e-portfolio system.

Benefits

There are a range of benefits for those involved in using e-portfolios, enabling learners to demonstrate skills and present tremendous opportunities to increase the range of evidence types accessible to both learners and assessors.
E-portfolios are flexible, cost effective and improve the assessment process. Additional benefits include the ability to access the e-portfolio from any networked or web enabled computer. This is accessible by a number of password protected users.
