The University of Edinburgh recognises the value of e-portfolios in developing graduate attributes. These include students' ability to self-assess, communicate, develop a professional identity and reflect on their learning.
In 2008 the University engaged in a year-long procurement process to find an e-portfolio tool that could be offered as a central service.
The video includes interviews with key staff at the University including Professor Jeff Haywood, Nora Mogey and Dr Jon Turner.
One of five video case-studies aimed at managers and practitioners. Along with an e-Portfolio Implementation Toolkit, the videos explore the issues, challenges and benefits of scaling up e-portfolio use across a university or college, and offer opportunities to explore the pros and cons of different approaches and methodologies.
