Abstract

This paper outlines the process of integrating an ePortfolio as a tool of academic development for students in tertiary education. The construction of the ePortfolio was based on the Self-Regulated Learning strategies which lead students’ performance towards constructing the artifacts for their ePortfolios in order to better present reflect and improve one of their academic ongoing projects by reflecting on their prior knowledge. The evaluation of the research is based on qualitative and quantitative analysis. The results prove the correlation between the enhancement of students’ self-regulation and the construction of an academic ePortfolio for the promotion of their academic development.
