The concept of a portfolio, as an instrument for self-reflection and personal development, is an obvious tool in the field of arts – collecting objects in a folder serves to provide evidence and present work results, and demonstrates the abilities of the artist. 

For some years now, this approach has also been increasingly used with students in other disciplines, such as foreign languages or those training to become teachers – with the help of various software solutions, students can create digital portfolios to reflect on their own personal development and their academic progress. Digital portfolios are set up in a similar way to websites and include the work that has been completed in the course of the degree, comments from teaching staff, feedback options and personal reflections. As a digital learning diary portfolios, therefore, not only serve to encourage an increase in knowledge, but also promote further personal development.  

Web-based portfolios can be shared easily; this means that teachers can quickly gain an insight into how results are achieved. This makes it possible for them to give the student more comprehensive feedback. Through the exchange within the team, portfolios can also serve as a basis for discussion in the plenum.
