Using e-portfolios to support learners


An e-portfolio is an online repository, belonging to and managed by the owner. It's a personal technology rather than shared, like a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

It contains artefacts added by the owner that are curated, arranged and presented, either in their own right or as evidence supporting attainment statements that showcase the owner's competencies and accomplishments.

E-portfolios allow the reordering of content to support different presentations of the owner's abilities depending on the need.


How to use e-portfolios to support learners and evidence learning


After completing this module you will be able to:

• build the use of e-portfolios into your learning and assessment practice
• guide learners' understanding of the different forms of evidence in an e-portfolio
• consider activities and assessments that encourage the use of digital media in e-portfolios

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - E1a : Assessment and feedback strategies

  • Use digital assessment tools to monitor the learning process and obtain information on learners' progress.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative assessment strategies, e.g. using classroom response systems, quizzes, games.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative and summative assessment in tests, e.g. through computer-based tests, implementing audio or video (e.g. in language learning), using simulations or subject-specific digital technologies as test environments.
  • Use digital technologies to scaffold learners' assignments and their assessment, e.g. through ePortfolios.
  • Use a variety of digital and non-digital assessment formats and be aware of their benefits and drawbacks.
  • Critically reflect on the appropriateness of digital assessment approaches and adapt strategies accordingly.
