Abstract: This study will explore student perceptions on how choice, ownership, voice, and authentic projects impact their ePortfolios, learning, and learning environments. The study will also address The Edinburgh Challenge: If eportfolios are so great, why aren’t more people using them? The findings of the study will confirm that COVA approach, which gives the learner control, ownership, and voice through authentic projects and the entire ePortfolio process – including selection of their ePortfolio tools, is a useful approach for furthering the effective use of ePortfolios. The participants of this study will include current students in the Masters of Digital Learning and Leading program at this university.
