The focus of this contribution is the relationship between the purpose to use an ePortfolio and its design. By highlighting the relationship between purposes and design of an ePortfolio, we want to present a framework that gives directives to use an ePortfolio in an educational context. When used for lifelong learning and / or 'assessment for learning', student-ownership and reflection are important characteristics. When used for accreditation (='assessment of learning') the use of 'standards' is at least equally important.
