Electronic portfolios have been hailed as a useful pedological tool on numerous grounds. One commonly cited justification is that portfolios deepen student learning and help students develop a professional identity. Whether electronic portfolios are used equally across programs and the degree to which they promote digital identities across student groups remains open to question. To fill this void in the research, in this study we explore the degree to which students from three majors (cybersecurity, leadership, and criminal justice) report using electronic portfolios, with a specific focus given to the reported strengths of electronic portfolios and the way the tool shaped digital identity development.
