How to organize the information?[edit | edit source]

You might have lots of artifacts, so they need to be organized in a nice way. Organizing, structuring, and labeling content in an effective way is an essential part of ePortfolio design and development. Try to keep ePortfolios simple and easy to navigate. Simplicity is the key factor in designing a good ePortfolio.

The contents of the portfolio depend on the purpose and audience of an ePortfolio. You should ask yourself, "What am I trying to show?" "What story am I trying to tell?" "Who is my audience and what do they need to know about me?" "What can they do with my ePortfolio?" [1]
