ePortfolios have become increasingly popular based on their potential to be applied to a wide array of contexts as well as their ability to be used in a great variety of individual or organizational purposes. ePortfolios offer the opportunity to create and manage an online space of digital artefacts that provide evidence of competencies and abilities acquired over a specific period of time. In this way, ePortfolios can be designed to enhance traditional learning and teaching methods, record achievements, the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), assist individuals with Personal Development Planning (PDP) or the Continuing Professional Development (CPD), among others.

This MOOC is focused on learners, teachers, practitioners, educational institutions, employers, organizations and/or policy makers interested in starting to implement an ePortfolio for the first time or who are interested in enhancing their current practices. This MOOC provides an entry point to the topic for non-expert users, providing the conceptual and instrumental knowledge for the creation of an ePortfolio strategy, regarding individual or organizational objectives.
