To create an ePortfolio you need to:
A learning portfolio is a very powerful learning tool which gives the creator, designer and user valuable opportunities to enhance their learning. The learning is driven by the reflection that needs to take place in order to produce the portfolio itself. The ability to reflect and therefore to learn more deeply is dependent on asking oneself questions. If the learner continually bears in mind the following questions when creating their portfolio, it should have a truly positive effect on the quality of the learning. This is what makes the learning portfolio such a powerful learning tool.
What is my purpose in creating this portfolio?
An exemplary ePortfolio for learning would most likely contain:
* a self-introduction
An exemplary ePortfolio for learning would most likely demonstrate:
* achievement of learning outcomes
There needs to be a good pedagogical reason to ask students to add any material to their ePortfolio; otherwise there is no educational value in doing so. Ask yourself: How does asking my students to do this add value to their learning? Similarly, making the ePortfolio a course requirement entails setting learning outcomes that align with that requirement.
At CityU both staff and students can create ePortfolios using the Blackboard portfolio editors. MyExpo LX, a user centric tool for creating Wikis and Blogs for different learning activities and management of learning, is also being piloted.
