ePortfolios and Learning Outcomes (a wonderfully put together site by the University of Idaho):
If you are an instructor looking to have your students develop ePortfolios, or a student that realizes that “whether you’ve been required to, or not” starting an ePortfolio is a necessity for you to succeed as a post graduate.
If you are a student, ‘What will you have to show for your college experience to prospective employers?’ Why should they hire you, and not someone else? How will you distinguish yourself from your peers? How can you “show them” proof of your college/life success up to this point?
