ePortfolio: Batson's Update

It's always interesting to read Batson on portfolio. The most recent treatment is ePortfolios, Finally! and it appears in Trent Batson's regular spot in Campus Technology magazine. In this article, the background and uses of eportfolios are updated. Among the stats: there's eportfolio activity at almost half of the U.S. higher ed institutions. Among the critique: learning outcomes and LMSs (learning management systems).

Two extra features accompany the Batson article. First, as usual, commenters add details from their own campuses and we always learn from that. Second, Batson offers a new support that he promises to maintain and keep current: a web site called EPORTFOLIO SOURCE.
