ePortfolios and Learning Outcomes
Students engage more fully with ePortfolios when they are confident they own them from the outset. Institutions can let students have full ownership over their ePortfolios and still require students to demonstrate how they are meeting institutional expectations in their ePortfolios. An effective solution is to forefront the learning outcomes by making them part the ePortfolio’s navigation. At the University of Idaho, we have been exploring WordPress as a platform for ePortfolios because students can own them, outcomes can be placed in the navigation menus and WordPress has powerful categorizing functions that allow students to easily filter evidence for their ePortfolio.

|STUDENT STEP-BY-STEP||INSTRUCTOR STEP-BY-STEP|
Instructors can create an ePortfolio template with learning outcomes that students can import or they can furnish students with a list of outcomes and have the students build their ePortfolios from scratch. Either way, we have created step-by-step instructions for both students and instructors.
