Abstract

An online Instructional Technology M.Ed. requires students to present electronic portfolios as a culminating event in the program. During the time that the program evolved from face-to-face to a completely online program, faculty have adapted strategies to reflect the changing technologies. Over the past six years, faculty in the program experimented with different software and presentation strategies before finding a successful combination. Students in the program now present their electronic portfolios using Wimba. The ePortfolios are created using a variety of Web 2.0 tools (wiki’s, personal websites, etc). The artifacts that students choose for their portfolios are selected to meet the NCATE standards identified by AASL or AECT. This roundtable discussion will focus on current procedures and best practices, as well as many lessons that have been learned along the way.
