What is an e-Portfolio?
The ePortfolio is a digital archive that documents the achievement of specified goals and learning outcomes within language learning. It also functions as an educational blueprint of learning opportunities in and beyond the classroom. Because students document their learning throughout their college careers, the e-Portfolio provides a unique vehicle for tracing the evolution of language proficiency and cultural competence. Rather than basing assessment solely on traditional exams or papers, the e-Portfolio showcases what students can actually do with a language. Digital badges are awarded to students and mark a number of milestones and accomplishments in their learning experience.
