ePortfolio Project

Starting in the Spring 2010 semester, I introduced the elements and structure of an “ePortfolio” to the web portfolio project.

ePortfolio Project Student examples;
Spring 2010 thru March 2011Presentation Objectives: To promote a discussion about accessible methods that will allow students to easily show examples of their academic work as well as independent projects and educational experiences.This may serve two objectives: students will be better prepared with tools and practices for self-promotion regarding job and graduate school applications; secondly, as more students participate it may provide a student generated method of evaluating overall student body goals and achievements as they attend Eastern’s undergraduate studies.
In 1999 when I began teaching at ECSU, I decided to use the student portfolio as a method to simplify and organize my grading process. Students were asked to purchase a 3 ring binder and sleeves in order to compile all assignments throughout the semester; ready for periodic review of individual assignments as well for the final evaluation of the entire semester of work.In the spring of 2000 when I was asked to teach a course limited to Digital Photography the natural step was to have students create a “digital portfolio”.Tools available in the computer classroom/lab at the time were Powerpoint and the ECSU student web servers via their z:/drive web folders.Currently accessed through the web address:
