Much time has been spent on choosing a platform for electronic portfolios.  Two (three) no-cost systems – Google Sites and Windows Live (and WordPress) – are competing for market share in Fall 2010.  This presentation will examine the strengths, challenges, and futures of each system and showcase ePortfolios developed by first-year students at Eastern CSU.
