10. UQ ePortfolio

What is an ePortfolio?

An ePortfolio is an online collection of evidence that showcases your reflective learning and experiences during your time at University and can help you get a job.

An ePortfolio may be used in your program or discipline to track development of professional skills or graduate attributes, and includes a Collaboration Workspace tool. Workspaces are collaborative or shared environments that contain portfolios, artifacts, and discussions.

Setup your ePortfolio

If you do not have a ePortfolio you can set up an account by following the What is ‘my ePortfolio’ instructions.

Why have an ePortfolio and not just a resume?

Unlike a traditional resume, ePortfolio allows you to demonstrate skills and accomplishments with multimedia files, such as images, video, audio and presentations. It also has the capacity to expand your professional image. Some advantages are:

  • Allows you to reflect and showcase your learning
  • Hosted in the cloud allowing remote access
  • Enables you to add instructor or peer feedback as an artifact, that can be sorted into a collection
  • Resource folders can be added to allow access to information and documents
  • Allows multiple users to the ePortfolio to view your work remotely including mentors and tutors
  • Allows you to engage and collaborate with peers in discussion forums.
