How do you reflect online? What process, what tools, what purpose? Take a look at this reflective practice mindmap for some ideas.
How do you organise your personal workbased documents? How do you share relevant evidence of competency with your RPL assessor? Doesn't it make sense to keep all your documents and data together in one place where you can find them? I used to store my documents, letters, certificates, stories, etc about my work history in folders on shelves in my office library - well actually they are still there - but now I have digitised most of these and added them to my eportfolio. This means I can access them from wherever I am and share with whomever I choose.
An e-portfolio is a learner-driven collection of digital artefacts articulating experiences, achievements and evidence of learning. Want to know more?
E-portfolios provide learners with a structured way of recording their learning experiences and work history.
E-portfolios can be developed quickly and easily to capture live evidence through the use of mobile phones and point-of-view devices, and can include a range of digital evidence such as audio, video, photographs and blogs.
The process of creating an e-portfolio can assist learners and employees to:

Mahara Eportfolio: tool available at VETSA
Create an account for yourself in the Mahara E-portfolio tool from VETSA.
This is a free environment for you to practice your Mahara eportfolios.
Note: if you have access to another Mahara system, please use that one. Keep in mind that at the time of writing (April 2010) it is not yet possible to 'export' your eportfolio content out of a Mahara system.
Part A: Upload a selection of artefacts and store them in relevant folders.
Part B: Create your own blog entries to display with selected artefacts.
Part C: Create a 'view' for your eportfolio and share it with someone.
