Creation of a learning landscape: weblogging and social networking in the context of e-portfolios
David Tosh and Ben Werdmuller totally get it. This is the vision for e-portfolios that absolutely rings true for me. Even though it's still in draft form, the paper charts a course toward true student engagement and ownership of their learning on the web.
Update: Some links and good feedback on the paper from Stephen and Will. I liked Stephen's take: "If your view of portfolios is just something akin to a content management system, don't bother. But if it's the student's personal and continuing presence in an online community of discourse, then you are on to something. "
