This article describes Web-based portfolio systems, examining what is known about implementing Web-based student portfolios. The first two sections address the culture and ideologies needed for successful implementation, discussing faculty role in the portfolio process and broadening the definition from a portfolio of student artifacts to a collaborative Web-based portfolio system. The third section describes the enhanced communications embedded in a Web-based portfolio system. The final section provides a checklist of 12 critical success factors needed to successfully implement the Webfolio system at the program and individual course level. The 12 critical factors are in the areas of information services cooperation; administrative support; technology infrastructure; portfolio culture; student learning centered culture; implementing force and project champions; implementation milestones; training and help resources; faculty members who believe Webfolios will make a difference in the quality of education and understand their role in it; standards of competency-based curriculum; integrated curriculum developed by teams of faculty; and supervisors and mentors who use the Webfolio to provide feedback.
