e-Portfolios: an overview of JISC activities

A short JISC briefing paper entitled e-Portfolios: an overview of JISC activities has been made available by Lisa Gray and Sarah Davies (apparently since the 5th of October, though I only saw it announced yesterday - hence this post).

The paper gives a useful overview of JISC-funded activities in this area (though a few more links to project Web sites would have been nice).  In particular, the paper lays out three main functions of e-portfolios as enablers of:

  • presentation - providing supporting material for admission to study or job, induction, appraisal or assessment;
  • transition - supporting learners as they move between and across institutions and sectors; and
  • learning - enabling personal and reflective learning, guiding and developing learning (both formal and informal) over time in education, training and employment.
