Abstract

E-portfolios enable students in higher education to showcase and reflect on their work. This paper focuses on the pilot study of ‘The Hive’ between May and September 2010. The Hive is an e-portfolio community tool which uses digital technologies to enable students in higher education and beyond to create a showcase and blog of their work. The Hive forms a central and searchable pool of ideas and connections both on the web and in Second Life. The Hive was used primarily by students at the University of Salford, but also alumni and students of other UK Universities.
