Today the higher education is undergoing deep changes and becoming more student-centred. In this sense the teaching-learning portfolios are useful by its versatility and potential. This poster presents an example of the digital portfolio, an instrument of teaching, learning and evaluation. This tool is important to the students and to the teacher. Stimulate the students to follow the activities, in a continuous form, incentive the self-organization and the self-regulation learning. Is a guide to the teacher also. They must have a diagram format functioning as the great topics, thematic headings, categories or boxes. The boxes are created and from them opened the implied hyperlinks, disassembling, exemplified, specifying, the different contents.
The elaboration of the portfolio appears as a space of distended personal reflection and also as a space of development and learning. Initially thought as a support instrument, protector, regulator of the teacher, it expanded, becoming instrument of regulation of the process teaching-learning, essential for the students.
