Electronic portfolios are becoming an increasingly important tool for the assessment and documentation of student learning, particularly for education degree programs. This paper describes how electronic portfolios are being integrated into a large, multi-site graduate education program in a small liberal-arts college situated outside of Philadelphia, PA. As the program is taught primarily by part-time faculty at off-campus locations, training faculty and students is a particular challenge. We provide a review of literature on the learning benefits of e-portfolio, portfolio administration, and a more general literature on the administration of off-campus programs. From analysis of this literature we present a list of key ways in which we expect the use of electronic portfolios to impact and improve the academic program. The paper concludes with a research strategy for tracking how the electronic portfolio actually impacts program development.
