Abstract

This research study considers third-level student experiences of electronic portfolio (ePortfolio) implementation during their education that occurred during the Covid-19 lockdowns. Adopting a mixed-methods approach, the purpose of this study was to identify the main challenges students face and document their experiences at an Irish higher education institution (HEI). The main challenges identified by students were a lack of time, lack of technical support, a lack of feedback received, and a dislike of information technology (IT). The key findings will provide insight about how ePortfolios can be better supported and implemented.

Keywords: ePortfolio, digital literacy, higher education, student experiences
