E-Portfolios are platforms for students, teachers, alumni, and departments to showcase their work and ideas. They are archives of learning, discovery, progress, achievement and reflection. They present dynamic content. Like a BOOK or a WEBSITE (a one way website), they display information. People like the e-portfolio a lot because there are options for color, font sizes, and embedded media. All Community members have access to the software, and many users have more than one portfolio for different purposes.
The work collected in an e-portfolio can represent a range of activities including: learning and achievement, professional ability and accomplishments, records of experiences, impressions or reflections, and/or the process and development of ideas, etc. An e-portfolio can be public, private only to the Otis Community, or intended for only one individual.
