Throughout your experience at IUPUI, you can collect and present your learning experiences in an ePortfolio.
Learning happens both inside and outside the classroom. By building your ePortfolio, you identify and reflect on these experiences, figuring out how all the different parts of your college journey fit together. Tell your unique story in your ePortfolio, and share it with faculty, friends, employers, and the community.
What is an ePortfolio?
It's a collection of all the experiences that you have in college that tells the story of your journey as a student and professional in your field.

SOPHIE CARRISON: So what is an e-portfolio? Think of it as your own personal website, similar to social media because it's online and shared with others. But it's focused more on your experiences in college as a student and as a pre-professional. It's a collection of all the experiences that you have in college that tell the story of your journey as a student.
This includes things that you do inside the classroom, outside the classroom, and in your life outside of school completely. We reflect on these experiences so that you can tell your college story through e-portfolio. Part of telling that story is including photos, documents, files, hyperlinks, and other content regarding your experiences.
Think about how many assignments that you complete each week in all your classes. By the time you graduate, you'll have done thousands of assignments, projects, and reports. Some of these things will be important in showing your growth as a student, a person, and a professional. You should also think about including things that you do outside of the classroom, such as internships, student organizations, campus events, service opportunities, research experiences, and so much more.
These things might include internships, regatta, research opportunities, scholarships, Jagathon, being a peer mentor or a TA, campus clubs or organizations, or even service events. So hopefully, now you have a better idea of what an e-portfolio is and what you might be able to include in yours. So go out, get involved, and get started on your e-portfolio.
If you need help, come to the e-portfolio studio. We're a peer-led space where students can come get help with their e-portfolio and feedback on it. Schedule an appointment or stop by or drop-in hours, and check out our website at e-portfolio.iupui.edu/studio
