Benefits of ePortfolios

Creating an ePortfolio can help you in many ways at different times along your college journey. By adding experiences to your ePortfolio now, you will be better prepared down the road to discuss what you did, why you did it, and how it connects with your other academic and work experiences. The time spent creating your ePortfolio is good preparation for job and graduate/professional school interviews. Your ePortfolio can be shared with anyone writing recommendation letters to give a detailed and thorough view of who you are as a student and professional.

Find your purpose

You may have a good idea of what you want to do with your life and how your college experience will help you get there – or maybe you aren’t so sure. An ePortfolio gives you a place to figure out who you are and who you want to be. It can even help you change your path when things don't go as planned.

Set goals and see your progress

Your degree map tells you which courses to take, but it doesn’t show what you have learned. Your ePortfolio takes care of that. Since we know not all learning takes place in the classroom, the ePortfolio is your space to show off all of your learning and strengths: from work, internships, student organizations, service projects, and countless other experiences you are having at IUPUI.

Prepare for internships, scholarships, and jobs

You have dreams, and your ePortfolio can help you reach them. Your ePortfolio helps you tell the story of your skills, strengths, and experiences. Whether or not you share your ePortfolio, putting the pieces together will give you important practice to speak clearly and succinctly about your experiences, goals, and accomplishments.

Bonus: get better and more detailed recommendation letters by sharing your ePortfolio with faculty.
