Build Your Own ePortfolio

An ePortfolio is a purposeful digital collection to showcase skills and share ideas.

Self Reflection

ePortfolios are powerful tools to share accomplishments and achievements. The main component of an ePortfolio often includes self-reflections relating to the learning and discovery process. An ePortfolio is simply a website that allows you to showcase and share a digital archive of your work.

If you are enrolled in #EmTech in Coursera you will create your own ePortfolio as you work through the modules. You will be guided back to EmTechWIKI to create artifacts and examples to display within your ePortfolio.

An artifact is a document or media file that demonstrates your learning and experience. Optimally, an artifact is an “example of your work” and something that you create that serves as digital evidence. This could include an image, document, video, audio, presentation, or anything that results from your exploration of the tools or resources.

Some of the resources that you explore will not result in a personal creation. One example of when an artifact would not result in a personal creation is if you read a relevant blog article or watch a video. In this case, it is OK to link to the resource and include an image that relates to the item. You can also choose to embed the actual resource that you explored directly onto your ePortfolio page. Always provide proper attribution to make it clear if an item is not your personal creation. Including visuals on your ePortfolio goes a long way to add interest and engage viewers.

The culminating activity in the #EmTech course includes an ePortfolio peer-review activity. The instructions about how to participate in the peer-review activity are located in the final module within Coursera.

Choose an ePortfolio platform

Explore EmTechWIKI ePortfolio Resources to discover a variety of tools to build your ePortfolio. If your institution, or organization, has its own access to an ePortfolio platform, we strongly recommend that you make use of it. Not only will you develop more directly applicable skills, but you will have access to any technical support provided.

You are encouraged to customize your portfolio. Be creative and make your ePortfolio reflect your personality.
