POTENTIAL OF E-PORTFOLIOS IN A BLENDED-LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

A. Carrasco

Universidad de Castilla la Mancha (SPAIN)
The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is transforming the practice of learning and how our students are assessed. As an example, we show the development of e-portfolios in a blended-learning scenario where face-to-face (F2F) and online teaching combine.
At the Escuela Universitaria Politécnica of Almadén, we initiated an e-portfolio project for those engineering students who attended the Technical English subject in the 2008-09 course.
E-potfolios allow our students the use of synchronous and asynchronous modes of interaction as well as new forms of self-assessment where students learn together, share information and work collaboratively.
The potential of e-portfolios in a blended-learning environment is part of an educational innovation project carried out at the Escuela Universitaria Politécnica of Almadén. In this project using e-portfolios, students are responsible of their own progress and achievements, encouraging the reflection on their own learning.
The European Higher Education Area (EHEA) is suffering a transformation that affects not only to teachers and students but also to the processes involved. The use of e-portfolios are becoming more and more popular in Higher Education. This paper is based on the experience of using the e-portfolio as a tool of assessment through objectives, competences and activities.
