This Exquisite Moment

Of all the astounding possibilities that information technology offers to learners now, perhaps the most important is the chance to be stewards of their own learning.  ePortfolio technology, and all its ancillary technologies, provide a learning space separate from the institutionally-owned digital spaces – the LMS as one example.  The eportfolio space is “separate” because learners own the intellectual property within their eportfolio space, because they set permissions as to who can see their intellectual property (their work), and because the eportfolio space stays with the learner from course to course, on and off campus, and after graduation.

As the transcript and the diploma lose credibility with employers, the eportfolio gains credibility.  It is a fuller and more palpable picture of what learners can do.
