Hi James, I'm not sure if these are quite what I'd describe (strictly) as "e-portfolios". These are information summaries, rather than selections of student-created content that demonstrate individual ability or application. An "e-portfolio" is usually conceptualised as analogous to an artist's or designer's portfolio: an expression of their best individual, original work, usually comprised of multiple "artifacts" - examples or extracts of work that are self-selected as representative of a larger body. I'm not sure if that's quite what's happening here... Want to discuss further? Contact me (email, Yammer, whatever) - you know where I live. :D Cheers, [Leonard]

Hi Leo - thanks for these thoughts. FYI, I've also been toying with similar terms for this exercise such as:
  1. learning journals
  2. diaries
  3. portfolios
I've settled for now on e-portfolios since the intent is an electronically shared documentation of each students journey through the learning activities. As a record of a journey, I'm comfortable calling these as portfolios. Although yes I do realise that some people have more formal expectations about what does or doesn't go into an e-portfolio - what we tried here in 2008 was looser than that, as will be the e-portfolios for Semester 2, 2010 - Motivation and emotion/Assessment/E-portfolio. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 05:46, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps my use of e-portfolio here represents a more developmental and reflective type, whereas perhaps you are referring to a more representational type? (ref: w:Electronic portfolio). -- Jtneill - Talk - c 06:02, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
