By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Helen Richardson and Helen Richardson and Rob Ward: Getting Ehat You Want: Implementing Personal Development Planning Through e-Portfolio, Centre for Recording Achievement October 6, 2005

The document looks like is was a draft left hanging (why not put the authors' names and the date at the top of the paper?) but it contains useful information. The paper "provides a generic summary of things to think about, questions to ask, and people to talk to" in the area of e-portfolios. More...

An Overview of E-Portfolios

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. An Overview of E-Portfolios
Overview of e-portfolios with links to quite a number of examples. Dave Tosh (of elgg) comments, "These papers are starting to get very boring. It has a few example e-portfolios towards the end but there is nothing new here for those who have been following e-portfolios over the past couple of years... If you have never heard of e-portfolios give it a read but don't look to this paper for any new insight." In annoying PDF. More...

Introducing IMS ePortfolio

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Introducing IMS ePortfolio
Two parts (Part one, Part two) of a description of the IMS e-portfolio specification (a third part ios forthcoming), clearly written and offering a depth of understanding. And while I appreciate the explanation of how IMS creates specifications, I still think this is the wrong way to do it: "the whole process, from charter to final specification, can take place with (a) No actual implementations to test whether the spec works and (b) No initial submissions of existing implementations to start things off".

And it seems to reflect a view of portfolios as being used in assessment, or at best, as a sort of resume. I don't know, maybe that's good. More...

Creation of a Learning Landscape: Weblogging and Social Networking in the Context of E-portfolios

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Creation of a Learning Landscape: Weblogging and Social Networking in the Context of E-portfolios
Talks about e-portfolios, but more importantly, quotes Helen Barret: "I made the public statement this week, that high stakes assessment and accountability are killing portfolios as a reflective tool to support deep learning. Those mandated portfolios have lost their heart and soul: not creating meaning, but jumping through hoops!" And Misja Hoebe, who makes a similar point. More...
