CMS and ePortfolio: At the Crossroads

CMS and ePortfolio: At the Crossroads

Course management systems offer powerful support for teaching, but they truncate student learning at the end of every term. ePortfolios offer a longitudinal learning environment in which a student can organize and maintain learning connections, but they may lack the orchestrated vision of an experienced educator. These alternate structures for capturing, evaluating, and reflecting on student work should intersect on the student’s desktop to deliver a powerful multiplier effect to an institution’s eLearning environment.
