An ePortfolio is essentially a blog site with the purpose of showing off your projects and skills. Think of it as a resumé with a few more dimensions.
An ePortfolio can showcase your work by giving you a place to share your papers, photos, certifications, and even videos. And because it is digital, it's easy to share with potential employers or colleagues.
Creating an ePortfolio can also give you the chance to reflect and integrate experiences. You can organize your story in a way that makes important connections amongst courses or topics, and links academic work and life experiences.
