Wk 2-Why eportfolios? [June 11, 2012, 6:26 p.m.]

The growth of eportfolios has been influenced by a number of factors including the changing nature of learning, the changing needs of learners and the dynamics of functioning in a knowledge based economy.

Eportfolios offer a range of benefits as learners move through the process of reflecting on their learning experiences and documenting their skills and knowledge.  

Discuss how the changing nature of learning, learners or a knowledge economy has influenced the adoption of e portfolios as a professional development tool.

What do you see as being the benefits of using an eportfolio as  PD tool ? Do you see any limitations? What strategies could you use to work through the limitations, if needed?
