Option 1 - Do you (or your students) have an eportfolio? If so, post a link to it here. What tools have you used to build e portfolios? What have been its advantages, or disadvantages? Do you have strategies that you have used to organise, build and maintain a portfolio that could be helpful to others?
I have a very rudamentary portfolio that I'm organizing in Google Sites. I'm using that tool for a couple of reasons. First, its very easy to use. I used Mahara for about six months, but found it took me too much time to design and little time for actual reflection. I didn't particulary like the aesthetics either, but that's probably more a reflection on my programming skills than the program. Second, our school has a Google Education account along with the Google tools and I use Sites already for webquests, unit webpages, etc. Finally, I will be having my physics students keep a physics portfolio in Google Sites this year and I wanted to have mine in the same program. I do think that other programs probably make a more visually appealing site and of course there are limitations to securing information on Google Sites. You can choose who has access to the site, but I don't think its easy (or perhaps even possible) to choose who has access to pages or sections of it. At this point, the portfolio is serving its purpose of providing me with a slate to work on. It needs to be presentable by the end of the 2012-2013 school year. Right now it is more a collection of partially completed projects & ideas.

I will be providing a very simple GoogleSites template for my physics students to use. I want them to be able to take ownership of it and pick the layout, format, etc., themselves. There is a portfolio page & refection page for each project as they will need to compose both of these at the end of each project.. Again, its still a work in progress.... 25 days and counting until the first day of school.
