An E-Portfolio is a digital collection of works, artifacts, resources, including demonstrations, projects, art works in form of graphics (2D, 3D), accomplishments that represent a student’s work.
The concept of e-portfolio has been derived from the traditional portfolios. From a pedagogical viewpoint, the portfolio was meant to improve the assessment process by bringing out and revealing a range of skills and understandings one student’s parts; support instructional goals; reflect change and growth over a period of time; encourage student, teacher, and parent reflection; and provide for continuity in education from one year to the next. Naturally, the portfolio had to be transformed to E-Portfolio, so as to survive the tough demand and rigid requirements of the examining bodies and also the job market. But has the e-portfolio been able to reflect the same pedagogical viewpoint from its parent portfolio?
Many people have come up with various concepts and models of e-portfolio in the education sector, and several systems have been set up to evaluate the student at different stages. Yet, these systems have failed to capture student perspectives.
The main rationale of the study is to propose a learning design specification for an innovative e-portfolio module that will be used in the Moodle e-learning environment of the University of Mauritius. One of the aspects of this research will be to give E-Portfolio a right structure for the moodle system. Hence, a need to come up with a global e-portfolio which is customizable to meet specific needs and at the same time retaining the pedagogical structure. The aim of this paper is to present the first part of the study; that is to come up with a conceptual proposal of the new E-portfolio system, excluding the technicalities and data collection.
