ePortfolios empower learners to showcase their whole self. They also serve as a platform for students to safely connect with an authentic audience by sharing the work they are most proud of, reflecting on their goals, and highlighting both their academic and non-academic strengths.
ePortfolios celebrate the rigorous and dynamic learning experiences happening on campuses and in classrooms through a cyclical, on-going process. The process of creating an ePortfolio challenges students to think critically about their academics, aids as a tool in their social-emotional growth, and encourages students to create a positive digital footprint.

"There are more ways to show how students are learning than just using a test... ePortfolios have become a real world, real life, authentic tool. The best ePortfolios I see are not just academic. They show what kids are interested in... It’s really about having a kid say, ‘This is what I’m proud of and this is why I’m proud of it'."
