I couldn't say it more plainly myself. "The literature doesn't discuss e-portfolio use to meet student needs and concerns but to support administrative efforts to solve long-term curricular issues." And I agree with this assessment: "Implementers who have not thoughtfully addressed the key issues outlined here will eventually come crashing down." The author writes that there is hope - but how much damage will the institution-centered initiatives cause in the mean time? More articles from the current EDUCAUSE Quarterly, freely available online (yay).
