  1. Hi Stephania,
    I have been using google docs for a couple of years now to collaborate on presentations, and really like it for that. A couple of weeks ago, I discovered that it can be used for e-Portfolios, but it is in the early stages. Since e-Portfolios is what I do with my one of two jobs (I teach in multimedia), I’m interested in the possibilities, but privacy is still an issue. I am going to help my daughter who is certified 1-8 to build her teaching portfolio this way instead of going with a subscription-based system.
