This study investigated the effects of the construction and development of electronic portfolios (e-portfolios) on a small user population at a public university in Malaysia. The study was based on a three-month Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and language learning course offered to the undergraduates of the university. One of the key components of the course was the construction and development of an e-portfolio. The purpose of this study is to uncover the impact of this class project on student development of computer and language learning skills. The problems faced in the developmental process will also be discussed. A qualitative case study approach involving interviews with six respondents was utilised in collecting and analysing the data. A questionnaire was used to support the qualitative data. The findings revealed that the e-portfolios had a positive impact on the student development of computer and writing skills.
