What is ePortfolio?

An ePortfolio (electronic portfolio) is an electronic collection of materials that shows your learning journey over time. ePortfolios can relate to specific academic fields or lifelong learning.

ePortfolios allow students to reflect, connect, and integrate learning across courses, disciplines, and experiences. They can document activities in and out of the classroom, upload work they are proud of, and reflect on who they are becoming as a scholar and a person. They can copy ePortfolios, tailoring them to specific audiences. They can create collaborative ePortfolios for group work, which can then be shared to the rest of the class or even the public. They can be creative, considering their ePortfolio a space for reflecting on what they are learning and skills they are building, for connecting ideas and interests from their academic and co-curricular activities, and for integrating them in their ePortfolio.

Any student, faculty or staff at UNCW can create their own e-Portfolios free of charge using Adobe or publicly available sites such as Wix and Wordpress.

Various units across campus are partnering in this ePortfolio initiative. Please contact Beverley McGuire (mcguireb@uncw.edu) for more information about the ePortfolio program at UNCW!
