An Electronic Portfolio, known as an ePortfolio, can be used for a variety of purposes: as an assessment tool to document the attainment of standards; as a digital story of deep learning; and as a digital resume to highlight competence. An excellent EDUCAUSE article entitled "Extending the Portfolio Model " gives an overview of the different approaches to the uses of ePorfiolios, and can be found at http://www.educause.edu/apps/er/erm04/erm0441.asp
The ePortfolio Project at New York City College of Technology "enables students to create a career ePortfolio as a professional website that will contain a number of their academic examples and learning experiences. Students are guided through the step-by-step ePortfolio creation process, starting with their professional goals statement and ending with their completed ePortfolio containing their resume." You can view the sister project at LaGuardia Community College's ePortfolio Website.

The UK Higher Education Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) has an ePortfolio site with a wealth of resources.
