What is an E-Portfolio?

  • Students in ENGL 100 are required to build a student E-Portfolio. An “E-Portfolio” collects work of yours in order to present it to specific audience. The audience for your E-Portfolio can be academic (e.g., applying to programs within Capilano U.; transferring to outside academic institutions; applying for graduate studies; job searching).
