ePortfolio Consortium

Several edubloggers already linked to this ePortfolio White Paper, but I also wanted to bookmark the ePort Consortium, which was behind the paper.
"An electronic portfolio, on the other hand, is owned and managed by the student/owner. Work evolves in the student's personal workspace(s) where it can be kept beyond the limits of a course for future reference and reflection."
This issue of ownership is key, and I wonder whether the corporate partners in this consortium really believe that individuals should control their own information. Memorial University has portfolios full of my writing on course discussion boards, but it's locked away in their WebCT vaults, inaccessible to me.
