This section links to ePortfolios that are primarily for showcasing electronic artifacts. These showcase-oriented ePortfolios are typically utilized by faculty and students for career advancement purposes.

Institutions also showcase electronic artifacts inside institutional ePortfolios that can be related to reaccreditation processes or as a means to publish an institution’s strategic plans and development progress on a public website.

Basically, showcase-oriented ePortfolios are simply large collections of accomplishments and various artifacts that are not used for teaching, learning or assessment purposes.
