Implementing an e-Portfolio system to enhance educational processes and outcomes has been becoming a hot issue among the Japanese universities that are ambitious in resetting their mission statements. In such universities, defining purposes, clearly stating what to be focused, learning processes, and expected outcomes are the critical issues in the development of their original e-Portfolio system. However, not all institutions are aware that e-Portfolio has advantages and disadvantages. One of the major disadvantages is that e-Portfolio lacks systematic assessment tools. How to cope with such disadvantage will lead to a successful implementation of the e-Portfolio system. In this session, it is discussed such disadvantages of using portfolios at the college-level education while introducing some successful cases in which the disadvantages have been smartly overcome.
