The CUNY School of Professional Studies ePortfolio initiative is unusual in that we have implemented ePortfolios in fully online courses. At CUNY SPS, ePortfolios provide a space beyond the “four walls” of our Blackboard LMS where students can cultivate their online identities and connect with each other while developing important digital literacy and communication skills. ePortfolio also provides a showcasing tool for prospective employers and admissions officers while promoting meta-cognition among students and fostering community in fully online programs. Our initiative is sustained through annual faculty development workshops, reunions, and by the work of our ePortfolio team.
