In the talk I will present a taxonomy of ePortfolio use cases. This taxonomy is one of our results from a research project funded by the Austrian Ministry of Science and Research. During the study we reviewed the state of the art of ePortfolio in the Austrian Higher Education sector. We especially investigated implementation strategies and the use of ePortfolio software.
It turned out that different implementation approaches are prioritising different features of ePortfolio software. Studying the literature on ePortfolio usage we categorised the different features of software functionalities of ePortfolio software and found clues how to match them with different implementation strategies. This approach not only helped us to distinguish different prototypes of use cases but also resulted in an elaborated taxonomy for ePortfolios.
