ePortfolios allow students to collect, archive, and publish their work, as well as draw connections among different projects and integrate topics and themes across disciplines and semesters.

In technology-enhanced learning, an instructor thoughtfully implements technology to improve student learning outcomes. Rather than employing technology for technology’s sake, instructors use technology to improve conditions for learning, including providing plentiful opportunities for practice, feedback, interaction, and engagement.
