Learning e-Portfolios

The Learning e-Portfolio

In Fall 2009, students began keeping Learning ePortfolios. 

An electronic Learning ePortfolio is a student curated e-portfolio that documents learning experiences and processes over the course of the undergraduate education at Otis. Students maintain their Learning ePortfolios as part of their coursework, and it provides an opportunity to reflect on their learning and make connections among their various experiences at the college. Students maintain their Learning ePortfolios for all four years, and it becomes the basis for a Senior Capstone course.
