The goal of this study was to gain a better understanding of how and why e-portfolios are being used by BSEN students after graduation. This knowledge will be utilized to evaluate the effectiveness of the current approach used to embed e-portfolio in BSEN and other engineering undergraduate programs, and to improve on the quality of e-portfolios produced by engineering students, and e-portfolio assessment methods. Results of this study have shown that Auburn BSEN graduates largely do not utilize their e-portfolios after graduation to any extent other than beyond not deleting them. Most Auburn BSEN graduates do not interact, update or utilize their e-portfolio after graduation despite finding them valuable while still enrolled as an undergraduate student.(Download PDF) (Export to EndNotes)
