This article explores the advantages and trade-offs of two paths to the development of electronic portfolios - using generic tools and using customized systems. The analysis assumes that the goal of electronic portfolios is to stay focused on the quality of work by a learner and the valid alignment of their work to the standards and goals of education. A comparison of the "best of all worlds" scenarios for both approaches shows that the two approaches each have important strengths that need to be weighed during the process of program planning.
