Aportfolio is Appalachian State University’s ePortfolio platform. Our Aportfolio initiative began in 2014. You can review a gallery of our outstanding Aportfolio scholars at: https://aportfolio.appstate.edu/scholars
In the simplest of terms an ePortfolio is an academic website where students collect & curate evidence of their learning for a professional audience, course, or program. The process of designing and creating an ePortfolio assists students in articulating transferable skills, knowledge, and co-curricular learning. Aportfolios provide a place where students organize, represent, and contextualize their academic growth and the intersections with their professional aspirations.
Aportfolios are private within the context of our campus, however, as the student develops a comprehensive professional ePortfolio they can request that their ePortfolio be made public, and password protected for secure and accessible sharing with audiences outside of Appalachian State. The Aportfolio also moves on with the student after graduation.
