This article discusses the impact of ePortfolio use and the success of students. Offers examples of the assignments used with Rutgers students, and a plethora of examples of student work. Though the focus of ePortfolios here was professional, instructors emphasized the importance of students reflecting on learning through their respective disciplines. This calls for reflection of learning across time and courses resulting in student insight. Students were also encouraged to share their ePortfolios with other students.
