What are ePortfolios?
ePortfolios are dynamic online spaces where students can reflect, publish, and share individual or collaborative content. Digication (the Cornell-supported program for ePortfolios) has a powerful feedback component and utilizes a template-based system. In addition, departments can access Digication to assist with accreditation and assessment of curriculum.
Why Use ePortfolios?
ePortfolios are a flexible resource where students and faculty can collaborate on developmental (project-based), reflective (self-awareness and learning), or representational (showcasing and sharing) experiences. Digication can be used in the classroom or across the curriculum.
The learning purposes of ePortfolios include:
- Reflecting upon learning processes and outcomes.
- Organizing and presenting learning accomplishments.
- Developing self-assessment skills.
- Representing and sharing learning experiences in an online platform.
Considerations for Using ePortfolios
Digication allows individualized or template-based online learning spaces and is not meant to be a content-delivery tool or a platform for discussions.
