NEW TRICKS: Are ePortfolios anything more than interactive, online replacements for transcripts and resumés? An article on eCampus News summarizes recent studies on how universities around the world are leveraging the tool. Down in Australia, faculty at Griffith University combined tools like Dreamweaver and Google apps to help students create digital portfolios that better reflect their learning experiences. At Northeastern University in Boston, faculty are using ePortfolios to teach first-year students the importance of writing for an audience. Meanwhile, in Michigan, one study points to the use of ePortfolios to foster civic engagement among students.
