Digication ePortfolio is a web-based tool that gives faculty, staff, students, and alumni the ability to easily publish work online as professional and customizable presentations. ePortfolios are a great way for students, faculty and staff to gather artifacts of their work in one convenient place. An ePortfolio can contain written works, photos, videos, collaborative assignments, projects, or reflective pieces.
Students can use an ePortfolio to showcase work for a particular course, and the instructor could assess their ePortfolio. ePortfolios can also follow a student throughout their entire university experience. This is a great way for students to gather work samples for potential future employment.
Faculty members can use an ePortfolio to highlight their accomplishments and show the community their work, collaborate with others in their department, or use during instruction.
Please note that according to the campus' open access policy, faculty should use CU Scholar to publicly share published, peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings, and faculty may link to these items in their ePortfolio.
