Use of the ePortfolio by Adults in the Tunisian Continuous Education Context
Mhiri Sellami, Hedia
Africa Education Review, v14 n2 p37-51 2017
This is a case study of using the ePortfolio in a module taught in a Master degree at the High Institute of Continuous Education of a Tunisian university. The first purpose of our initiative is to raise awareness of the concept among the Tunisian teachers because most of our students are teachers. Our second purpose is to support these students throughout their learning. To evaluate the impact of the ePortfolio use, a questionnaire was proposed to the students and its results indicate that they appreciate it. The students were keen to have the ePortfolio extended to the other modules despite the fact that they find it time-consuming. An ideal student's profile for the continuation of similar initiatives is suggested: it is an adult learner who massively uses the computer in a diversified and a well-targeted manner. This paper addresses also the case study findings concerning teaching adult learners.
