Description/Abstract

ePortfolios are of particular interest as a means of supporting and encouraging life-long learning and continuing personal development. A current problem in this context concerns the inclusion of certification of attainment – the electronic equivalent of paper award certificates. At its heart is an interesting problem of three party trust extended over the lifetime of the student. This paper outlines the key issues, offers a proposed solution, and indicates how work is proceeding on an on-going UK-funded project which will deliver and evaluate a demonstrator to test the effectiveness of this solution.
