Welcome to the Virginia Tech Connect-2-Learning ePortfolio.  In this site, you will learn about our implementation of electronic portfolios at Virginia Tech.  We include information about the initial adoption of ePortfolios at our university, our strategies for adoption, our approaches to reflective practice, case studies of ePortfolio use within our specific programs and disciplines, as well as our scale-up and support strategies.

From the university’s About page:

Dedicated to its motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), Virginia Tech takes a hands-on, engaging approach to education, preparing scholars to be leaders in their fields and communities. As the commonwealth’s most comprehensive university and its leading research institution, Virginia Tech offers 215 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to 31,000 students and manages a research portfolio of $454 million. The university fulfills its land-grant mission of transforming knowledge to practice through technological leadership and by fueling economic growth and job creation locally, regionally, and across Virginia.

Founded in 1872, Virginia Tech has the largest number of degree offerings in Virginia, more than 125 campus buildings, a 2,600-acre main campus, off-campus educational facilities in six regions, a study-abroad site in Switzerland, and a 1,800-acre agriculture research farm near the main campus. The campus proper is located in the Town of Blacksburg in Montgomery County in the New River Valley and is 38 miles southwest of Roanoke.

The ePortfolio Initiatives office at Virginia Tech was instantiated in 2008 but was conceived several years earlier when strategic thinkers planned the adoption of the Sakai Collaborative Learning Environment and recognized the pedagogical value of the Open Source Portfolio tools embedded within Sakai.
