What are the advantages over a traditional paper based system?
It enables the learner to take ownership of their own work and the key stakeholders to track and manage progression and achievement 24 hours per day, 7 days per week using laptops or mobile devices. As well as the savings on time and resources, most learning providers have shown unexpected benefits such as improvements in retention, achievement and success rates.
The ePortfolio (data) may be available to all key stakeholders. Not ‘hidden’ in a paper portfolio, stored who knows where, accessed for periodic reviews or verification, at a cost that few organisations consider other than it’s an essential part of the process. Well it isn’t!
