Abstract


This study analyzes the experiences with group electronic portfolios at the University Pablo de Olavide as a strategy of educational innovation to improve teaching-learning process at University. These experiences consist of the use of group e-portfolios inside and outside the classrooms, which were applied by the students to verify the achievements, difficulties, and most relevant evidence in the planning and implementation of a multimedia educational material (MEM) aimed at prevention and social awareness, with emphasis on social groups at risk and social vulnerability. The results, obtained by using a qualitative methodology, support that group e-portfolios improve the capacity of students to work collaboratively, enable an awareness of their own mistakes, facilitate their self-assessment, and provide evidence of their academic progress. Students consider the considerable time and effort needed to implement group e-portfolios as among the limitations of their use.
