Overview of e-portfolios with links to quite a number of examples. Dave Tosh (of elgg) comments, "These papers are starting to get very boring. It has a few example e-portfolios towards the end but there is nothing new here for those who have been following e-portfolios over the past couple of years... If you have never heard of e-portfolios give it a read but don't look to this paper for any new insight." In annoying PDF. I have mixed feelings about e-portfolios. In one sense, personal portfolios would be very useful. But tying them specifically to learning, and specifically to educational institutions, makes the same mistake as was made in learning object metadata - it assumes that the educational sphere is separate from everything else in life. An e-portfolio should be a part of a life-portfolio, and the educational content only a small part of it.
