Learners’ initial expectations and experiences of ePortfolios: A pilot study

By Susi Peacock and Sue Murray


This paper discusses the findings of a pilot study that explored learners’ preliminary expectations and experiences of using an ePortfolio. ePortfolios have the potential to support learning and personal development due to the multiple roles they can play in the learning environment; however, student engagement has been varied. A mixed-method approach assisted in developing a rich picture of learner experience and use, and findings suggest that tutor and learner need support to understand the complexity of the tool. Furthermore, data protection and alumni access need to be addressed at an institutional level before appropriate resources are committed to implementation
