What is an ePortfolio?

Building an ePortfolio needs to start at the ground level. It will continue to grow as you fertilize, water, and nurture the contents. In the ePortfolio world, we call this “curating.” You will easily see that ePortfolios can start and grow in many places but it will be only as strong as you nurture it to be, just as grass plants its own roots. An ePortfolio is an expression of you. YOU own your ePortfolio because you are the creator, designer, and inspirer. Check out the links below to help guide and assist you as you develop your own ePortfolio:
