Towards understanding the potential of e-portfolios for independent learning: A qualitative study

Juliana Chau, Gary Cheng


This paper discusses the findings of a research study concerning the use of e-portfolios to develop independent learning, from the perspectives of teachers and students in a Hong Kong university.

Insights derived from this research will illuminate the issues about e-portfolio-mediated independent learning across a range of settings and learners.
