“One of the uses of e-portfolios which most closely resembles the use of physical portfolios is as a digitised showcase of student work and skills. … The analogy here is generally with an artist’s portfolio. This is a collection of the highest quality work that the student is capable of, and typically shows the range of work, perhaps with an idea of progression over time. It is a showcase of the student’s versatility and an indicator of their potential.” p18
