Abstract

Electronic portfolios for preservice teacher education students provide many advantages for the students who create them and for teacher education programs. Portfolios provide visual displays of the prospective teachers’ technology skills, as well as their abilities related to various educational standards. For teacher education programs, they provide for easy storage, documentation of student performance, and aggregation of evaluation data for the purpose of program assessment and improvement. However, how can small institutions accomplish the creation, management, and evaluation of electronic portfolios with few resources and little technical support? This paper discusses a unique application of WebCT, an electronic course delivery system, for the development, maintenance and evaluation of electronic portfolios.
