Welcome to my ePortfolio website!
 
My name is Amit Chauhan, and this website contains artifacts of learning for each course I have completed in the MS Instruction Technology program at the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport (CT), USA.
 
This site is organized as follows:

  • The About Me area contains biographical information.
  • The Resources area is a collection of links to websites in my content area that I have found to be particularly useful.
An electronic portfolio, also known as an ePortfolio, or digital portfolio, is a collection of electronic evidence (artifacts, including inputted text, electronic files, such as PDF files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and Web links, etc.) assembled and managed by a user, usually online. ePortfolios are both demonstrations of the user's abilities and platforms for self-expression, and , if they are online, they can be maintained dynamically over time. Some ePortfolio applications permit varying degrees of audience access, so the same portfolio might be used for multiple purposes.

An ePortfolio can be seen as a type of learning record that provides actual evidence of achievement. Learning records are closely related to the Learning Plan, an emerging tool that is being used to manage learning by individuals, teams, communities of interest and organizations.
 

Types of ePortfolio

  There are three main types: Developmental, Reflective, and Representational.
  • Developmental: A Developmental ePortfolio, or ePortfolios or digital portfolios, are a record of things that the owner has done over a period of time, and may be directly tied to learner outcomes or rubrics.
  • Reflective: A Reflective ePortfolio includes personal reflection on the content and what it means for the owner's development.
  • Representational: A Representational ePortfolio shows the owner's achievements in relation to particular work or development goals and is, therefore, selective. The three main types may be mixed to achieve different learning, personal or work-related outcomes with the ePortfolio owner usually being the person who determines access levels.

This web ePortfolio is representational.
