What is an ePortfolio?

An ePortfolio is a collection of a student's work in electronic format. You should include a welcome/introduction to your ePortfolio. This is the first virtual impression that people will have of you, so make it a great one! You may even want to include a video welcome where you explain the organization of your ePortfolio and direct the viewer through the site. Your ePortfolio may contain all or some of the following:

  1. Supporting files of various formats (text, pictures, video, etc.)
  2. Evaluations, analysis and recommendations
  3. Evidence of General Education competencies
  4. Writing samples (which might include several drafts to show development and improvement)
  5. Projects prepared for class or extracurricular activities
  6. Evidence of creativity and performance
  7. Evidence of extracurricular activities, including examples of leadership

Who should develop an ePortfolio for general education? 

All undergraduate students including transfer students and students who have changed their major — in other words, every undergrad, though it is no longer a graduation requirement.
