Abstract

Traditional ePortfolio systems are usually used as an individual learning unit, or an assessment tool in education. However, these systems often lack social constructivist learning features such as sharing, peer review, and group collaboration. This paper describes a new ePortfolio system that supports both personal and social constructivist learning, and reports on its implementation and evaluation in a Management Information Systems course. Student surveys and interviews showed that students found the software easy to use and beneficial to learning and knowledge sharing. This paper also discusses design problems in current e-learning systems and reasons for promoting support for both personal and social constructivist learning in e-learning systems.
