An e-portfolio is a digital tool that can store different types of contents, such as texts, audio/video files and images. E-portfolio is also a learning tool; it can support both learning and assessment processes (Barrett 2007). Portfolios are believed to have many purposes such as learning, assessment and employment portfolios (Wolf, 1999). This paper has explored the attitudes of ESP students towards using e-portfolio in their classes. Moreover, a deep literature on different kinds of portfolio -- summative and formative-- is presented. The design of this study is in the realm of quasi-experimental research. A total of 63 male and female ESP students majoring in graphic design and photography at University of Applied Science & Technology participated in this study. The data was collected through a researcher-made questionnaire to find the attitudes of students. The results revealed the positive attitude of those participants towards using e-portfolio. E-portfolio has many implications for the ESL/EFL teacher, learner and institution e.g. students feel they are given the opportunity to improve on their work.
