      • The use of ePortfolios requires a paradigm shift for
      • teachers, one that offers a new, yet very unfamiliar way of
      • engaging learners.

      • Build on experiences from the initial trial by taking a more
      • focused approach; introducing ePortfolios where they are more
      • likely to succeed.
