Final examinations are held outside normal class time ePortfolio WSI ePortfolio is a platform that can be used by students to capture electronic evidence in support of their learning journey within TAFE WSI. This evidence may include student generated text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries and hyperlinks. ePortfolios are both demonstrations of the learners abilities and platforms for self- expression. They can be maintained dynamically over time. An ePortfolio can be seen as a type of learning record that provides actual evidence of achievement that can be used as evidence for Recognition of Prior Learning and employment applications. ePortfolios, like traditional portfolios, can facilitate students' reflection on their own learning, leading to more awareness of learning strategies and needs.
