This chapter focuses on the potential of e-portfolios for building the capacity of pre-service teachers for reflection, the challenges faced by various stakeholders and suggestions of how these challenges may be addressed. It then aims to provide a holistic approach for the sustainable use of e-portfolios in pre-service teacher education programmes. With these constant reflections guided by mentors and supervisors, the pre-service teachers become more aware of their strengths and weaknesses; thus constantly reviewing and fine-tuning their professional development plans. All these lay the foundation of lifelong learning competencies. Copyright © 2016 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
