ePortfolios

UAB ePortfolio by eInstruction Logo

At UAB, "We envision students using an electronic portfolio as an integral part of their education to reflect on learning, to integrate their knowledge, to learn more deeply, to shape curricular choices and goals, and to showcase skills and accomplishments." (University of Alabama at Birmingham, Workshop, February, 2008).


An ePortfolio (electronic portfolio) is a purposeful and meaningful collection of work which can include text and media files. Several portfolios can be created to serve different purposes. Each ePortfolio has a purpose and is formatted by its owner to match designated requirements.

Students can showcase skills and accomplishments for prospective employers or entrance to graduate/professional programs. The ePortfolio can also serve as a personal archive of documents.

Used in a course or program curriculum, ePortfolios can demonstrate student's achievement of required course or program competencies/outcomes as well as the process of getting there.

UAB has selected TaskStream as the campus supported ePortfolio solution.
