Abstract

This paper reports on an e-Portfolio pilot project that was initiated in January 2010. The purpose of the e-Portfolio pilot was to report on lessons learned from the early stages of implementation with emphasis on pedagogical transformation so that students benefit through the deployment of an e-portfolio initiative, thereby supporting the learning process and promoting systematic reflection of significant learning. A combination of a variety of factors (i.e., drivers, motivators, resources and constraints) deemed to influence e-Portfolio use/non-use are analyzed. The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is used to explain the acceptance of the e-Portfolio system to determine if students are likely to adopt the newly-implemented technology as it was intended to be used. We believe the e-portfolio preparatory/pilot work can provide a robust platform for future, definitive large-scale e-portfolio implementation. However, additional training, development and support would need to be provided in the piloting of next phase of this project. This paper provides an overview of project goals, the steps required to be taken to address the goals, results from the study, future plans, and project recommendations.
