The article below, published by EDUCAUSE, offers an overview of the different possible uses for ePortfolios and documents the extent of that usage at selected AAU-member universities.
ePortfolios allow students, educators, and other professionals to collect evidence of learning, creativity, and reflection to showcase their work and ideas. At Otterbein, we use Digication as our campus-wide ePortfolio system. A few uses of ePortfolio on campus include student galleries, collaborative projects, research presentations, documenting experiential learning, interactive resumes and even reporting on social or sporting events and student groups. Otterbein faculty, staff and administrators also use Digication to support promotion and tenure, program assessment and as a place to collaborate and share ideas.
This LibGuide is intended as an introduction to ePortfolio for both faculty and students. On-campus support for this service is currently provided by the Center for Teaching and Learning. For more information about ePortfolio use at Otterbein and for additional help, including how-to videos, see our Help Portfolio.
