Abstract: Our changing society, increasingly dependant both socially and economically on information and communication technology (ICT), is generating new educational needs along with new teaching methods. New generations of students have fresh needs and expectations, which are particularly manifest in academic environments like universities. Nowadays, higher education programs face ever-more challenges: the growing diversity of student profiles, the advent of new technologies, the multiplicity of university courses. In connection with the In link with the Global Asia Pacific 2011 Conference first theme (Advanced Technologies for Learning and Teaching: learning portfolios), this presentation aims to (1) shed light on the development and features of an eportfolio system that would truly benefit everyone involved in education, both learners and trainers; and (2) examine the eportfolio impact (advantages and challenges) on higher education learners.
