This study extended a conventional ePortfolio by proposed Wikipedia knowledge recommendation service (WKRS). Participants included 100 students taking courses at National Central University which were divided into experimental group and control group. The control group students and experimental group students have created their learning portfilios by using ePortfolio with WKRS and conventional ePortfolio without WKRS, respectively. The data for this study was collected over 3 months. The experimental results have shown that the learners’ satisfaction, system use, system quality and information/knowledge quality of experimental group students have significant progress than control group students.
