The use of e-portfolios has widespread in the higher education institutions. Two types of e-portfolios are of our interest: the ones elaborated by the students in order to document their achievements, difficulties and reflections regarding their learning process in a course, and the ones elaborated by professors to structure teaching, promote and evaluate their students learning during the teaching of a course. Inclusion of multimedia elements in e-portfolios provides valuable information to teachers in order to recognize their student´s knowledge and skills and also provides students with better and more resources to document their learning process. This gives a superior advantage to e-portfolios over traditional portfolios.

To favor the use of e-portfolios it´s important to provide to teachers and students the knowledge and skills that will allow them to create their own portfolios. This paper describes the features of an Educational Software which provides this knowledge and skills. Also, a description of their implementation with professors and students of the psychology program in the Zaragoza Faculty of Higher Studies belonging to the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Through the analysis of e-portfolios, created by professors and students as a result of the educational software implementation, highlighting the features of e-portfolios that promote student´s learning and contribute to improve the teaching process.
