The effective use of electronic portfolios in educational institutions confirms their value as an important teaching and learning tool. An electronic portfolio is a digital archive or collection of artifacts (audio/video clips, text, graphics, and coursework) that represent the owner of the electronic portfolio, whether it is an individual, group, or institution. Personal reflection on one’s work or philosophies is a key element in many electronic portfolios. Some question whether electronic portfolios really benefit the educational process. This author overviews recent literature related to the use of electronic portfolios and discusses the issues and challenges of implementing and effectively using electronic portfolios in higher education institutions.
