An electronic portfolio, also known as an e-portfolio or digital portfolio, is a

collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually

on the Web (also called Webfolio). Such electronic evidence may include inputted text,

electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks. E-portfolios are both

demonstrations of the user's abilities and platforms for self-expression, and, if they are

online, they can be maintained dynamically over time. Some e-portfolio applications

permit varying degrees of audience access, so the same portfolio might be used for

multiple purposes.

A digital portfolio is a purposeful collection

of learnings over time that documents personal,

academic and professional development.

It is a visual guide that maps where you

have been, where you are going and how you

plan to get there. In this context, a digital portfolio

is a tool to communicate what you know and can do.

Grammar is one of the most boring subjects for students.

Actually, many students really hate grammar.

During grammar lessons many of them are bored,

others are daydreaming and others are thinkinghow to murder their teacher. :(
