ePortfolio and University Assesment

ePortfolios available to the entire Boston University community lead to several immediate benefits:

  • Accreditation processes for our professional schools, as well as the University, benefit greatly from an electronic archive of student work that can be sorted and indexed to support educational goals. Currently, such work is collected and sorted by each professor by hand.
  • ePortfolios encourage technical competency in all members of the University’s community, advancing a fluency in this area that is both necessary in our technological and global world, and a main recommendation made in the OneBU Report.
  • During the University’s Admissions Open Houses period, current students could access and exhibit ePortfolios as a way of showcasing to new students the breadth and diversity of experiences and education available at Boston University
