International Perspectives on ePortfolios in Higher Education: Case Studies from Asia, North America and Europe

Monika Ciesielkiewicz, William Wisser, Diane Rozells

Abstract


The authors of this paper explore case studies from three different universi-ties: Harvard University, Sookmyung Women's University, and Villanueva-Complutense University of Madrid. Although each case is from a different country on three different continents, what they have in common is that they all implemented ePortfolios at the course level within a Master of Edu-cation Program. ePortfolios are dynamic tools that can be used for many functions, which can be sorted into three categories: learning, evaluation, and career development. This paper analyzes the success factors of the three ePortfolio use cases as well as the challenges that can be considered general-izable and others that are more culturally specific. The exploration of differ-ent perspectives can help to develop a common understanding of the uses, benefits, and potential of ePortfolios in higher education.
