E-Portfolios: A Review of Their Role in Education Jennifer Baucom Myers, Florida State University Richard Hartshorne, University of North Carolina at Charlotte In recent years, educational uses of electronic portfolios, or e-portfolios, have increased. They are seen in higher education, as well as the K-12 environment. However, the effective integration of e-portfolios in the educational arena involves addressing a variety of issues, including technology skills, adoption, time, support, and others. In this paper, we discuss these, and other, issues while summarizing the literature related to e-portfolios. Areas addressed include benefits of e-portfolios, considerations for developing effective e-portfolios, and implications related to implementing e-portfolios in various educational situations.Winter 2007: Volume 11, Issue 4
