I’ve achieved my Level 1 badge from the Epcop Mooc. This first Level set the question:
‘What are e-portfolios, and what impact will they have on you?’
This question had me flummoxed for a while, particularly when trying to get my head around the differences (if any) between blogs and eportfolios. After working through the extensive range of resources provided, I discovered that the general consensus is that eportfolios can be all things to all men (and women)!
One of the resources I particularly liked was this case study example (text and video) showing eportfolios being used as a tool for professional development. However, whilst they define an eportfolio as being, “a place to collect evidence of learning“, I found that I was struggling to find just the right Web tool to use.
I then found this visual image which Coach Carole posted to the Mooc which suggests using different storage areas, and I found it useful to set out the structure for my e-portfolio
So, my e-portfolio now consists of:
- a Mahara portfolio page where I have collated learning resources which I have found useful
- a googlesites page which records evidence of my learning, and achievements
- and this blog where I can reflect on my learning.
