- Professional ePortfolios: A Professional or Career ePortfolio is a website
that is made up of documents or media (artifacts) that show evidence of experiences, skills and knowledge.
It is structured and organized for a professional audience whether it is for graduate school or an employer.
Although the process of creating the Professional ePortfolio includes both learning and assessment, less
process is showcased unless encouraged by the future employer. The Professional ePortfolio can be a
capstone project or it can be worked toward throughout the curriculum.
- Learning ePortfolios: Learning ePortfolios are also websites that contain a variety
of documents. However, the purpose of these ePortfolios is to show growth instead of skills. It may include
lots of document drafts or have comments embedded in the ePortfolio. The Learning ePortfolio can be used both
at the course level and programmatic level as well.
- Course ePortfolios: Course ePortfolios are a
type of Learning ePortfolios that gives students the opportunity to practice with artifact creation and
technology during a single course. Although the ePortfolios have fewer documents, they often give students
a jumping off point to continue their work with ePortfolios.
- Assessment ePortfolios: An assessment ePortfolio could be both a Professional or
Learning ePortfolio, but Assessment ePortfolios are often created with the soul purpose of assessing
learning outcomes. These ePortfolios are most commonly created in LMS-like platforms, which tracks the
student data. Although Auburn will assess the ePortfolio Project at different levels using both direct
and indirect measures, the Development Committee decided against purchasing a platform because the committee
hoped the main goal of these ePortfolios would be learning, not assessment.
