Advisors could use ePortfolios in tracking students’ academic progress, guiding students’ professional interests, and determining and encouraging students’ choices in study abroad programs and internships.  For advisors, the ePortfolios could be a significant, and visible, illustration of a BU undergraduate’s maturation during his or her years at the University.  For graduate students, ePortfolios can document academic, clinical, research and other parts of their personal development plan at BU. In short, ePortfolios can

.    Improve student learning

.    Make learning visible to students

.    Foster reflective learning, which is self-adjusting

.    Acknowledge and showcase learning to personal and professional communities
