Title: Designing e-portfolio system for Undergraduate Student
A portfolio is a systematic and purposeful collection of work and achievement documentation (Drier, 1997). E-portfolios are highly personalized, customizable, Web-based files that document learning portfolios and demonstrate individual and collaborative learning process (McCowan, Harper, & Hauville, 2005). An e-portfolio system is a Web-based repository management system that stores students’ learning documents under the name of artifacts, such as academic records, essays, project reports, assignments, assessments, and personal and professional development related contents. Students use e-portfolio systems to present artifacts, receive feedback from instructors and advisors, and communicate with each other.
E-portfolio is supposed to serve three purposes: assessment, showcase, and learning (Greenberg, 2004). For assessment purposes, e-portfolios include rubrics based documentations and assessment files. For showcase purposes, e-portfolios present artifacts of accomplishments to demonstrate career development. For learning purposes, e-portfolios can be useful for on-going learning and reflection.
In the e-portfolio, student, lecturer and industry will be involved. The student will use e-portfolio system to access learning monitoring by lecturer. Student who wants seeking the job can build resume and industry can view student resume. Student also can store all digital collection like certificate, study achievements and assignment in this system.
E-portfolio will be developing for UiTM student. In Malaysia, e-portfolio is not widely used. UiTM will be the platform to introduce the e-portfolio in Malaysia and will be widely used among students in Malaysia.
Student needs e-portfolio to improving the quality of learning, recognizing individual achievements, keep track career development and for seeking the job.
