e-Portfolios: Assessing the Legal Issues

Addressing the legal issues arising from ePortfolio development and use can take considerable time and effort. However, an early investment in those issues can save considerably more effort later on, by highlighting key issues and allowing ePortfolio providers to plan to avoid them or ameliorate their effects. Many matters can be addressed, at least in part, by ensuring that e-Portfolio provider staff and learners are provided with adequate information and guidance. Maintaining adequate documentation of processes and decisions also helps to provide continuity in approach to legal issues over time.

JISC infoNet has created a detailed and useful InfoKit that covers many aspects of managing e-Portfolios.
