  8. Why is ePortfolio? • "An innovation of the early 1990s, ePortfolios occur at the intersection of three trends: • 1) Student work is now mostly in electronic form • 2) The Web is everywhere, allowing students to manage large volumes of their work • 3) The 'dynamic' Web site that's database-driven, instead of HTML link-driven, has become the norm for Web developers. We've reached a critical mass, habits have changed, and as we reach electronic "saturation" on campus, new norms of work are emerging. Arising out of this critical mass is a vision of how higher education can benefit, which is with the ePortfolio." (Source: Dr. Trent Batson, Director, Information and Instructional Technology Services, University of Rhode Island)

  9. Some figures • Survey data collected from students on the UC Berkeley campus. • 92% of undergraduate students list computer skills as important to learn during college. • 35% say they've made "little to no progress“ • 36% say they've made only "some progress.“ (Source: Undergraduate Experience Survey, Spring 2003) • 80% of undergraduate students do not have a personal website.
