    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Although electronic portfolios are pedagogical tools and not technologies, there’s no question that ePortfolios require some kind of platform. Often schools offer a platform inside a learning management system; Blackboard, for instance, has an ePortfolio tool. There are also ePortfolio-specific platforms, which institutions tend to adopt for assessment purposes and which are often designed as online assessment systems rather than spaces where ePortfolios can be created; that is, students upload work samples but are not invited to make the portfolios their own or to include extracurricular work. The individual faculty member who either doesn’t have or want a system will find this guide helpful: it focuses on four Web site editors—WordPress, Google Sites, Weebly, and Scholar—and identifies their affordances and limitations according to five dimensions: user-friendliness, collaborative capacity, multimedia, blog, and design options. Faculty members new to ePortfolios or digital technologies will find the comments in the user-friendly category very helpful.
