Abstract

This article describes the author's experiences with facilitating an ePortfolio project in a Hong Kong Higher Education Institution (HEI) as well as her reflections on this project. Firstly, the impact on Hong Kong HEIs brought about by various educational policies in recent years is described. Next, the major types of ePortfolios in the Higher Education sector are examined as discovered in existing literature. The last section deals with the backgrounds of the College and the ePortfolio project, the challenges that the author as the project-manager has faced, as well as the rewards brought to both the students and the faculty through the implementation of this project. It is hoped that this article could help stimulate discussions of how ePortfolios could benefit and play a key role in enhancing the learning environment of both teachers and students under the new educational reform in Hong Kong.
