BlackBoard 9.1 offers ePortfolio for demonstration of student learning and for showcasing student work. In addition, as noted by USC Connect, ePortfolios are “an ideal tool to help students plan their college experience, identify areas of interests, reflect on experiences they have, and connect many experiences to one another and to their coursework.” As with traditional academic portfolios, ePortfolio allows students to create personalized artifacts of many types: video, photos, audio, text, and documents. This presentation will describe incorporating ePortfolio into two public health undergraduate majors’ courses (i.e., UNIV 101 and capstone/senior seminar). Feedback from students regarding their experiences in creating their ePortfolio will be shared. Instructor tips and lessons learned will also be presented.
