A Quick Definition…
An ePortfolio (short for electronic
portfolio) is a collection of multimedia-rich,
linked documents that students (and
perhaps faculty, programs, and/or
administrators) compose, maintain,
synthesize, and develop over time.


Kirkpatrick, J. (2006, June 2). ePortfolios: Zero to sixty: Assumptions,
actions, expectations. Paper presented at the 2006 Sakai/OSP
Conference.
                                                                           2
… In Practical Terms
 Schools or departments will be able to
  assess student progress in a definitive
  manner.
 Students will be able to develop online
  showcases of their work at NNU and
  create resumes that can be customized for
  potential employers.


                                          3
The Bottom Line
ePortfolios help students make sense of
higher education through reflective practices
that encourage users to connect their
learning experiences.

Tk20: ePortfolios and More
 Several NNU departments are now using
  a web-based application called Tk20, an
  assessment and reporting system.
 In addition to tools to manage field
  experience, create reports based on
  student progress, and much more, Tk20
  includes an ePortfolio aspect.
