What makes a good digital portfolio?

Traditionally skills and competences which are gained during an education are rewarded with certificates or diploma’s. An advantage of this ‘proof of being competent’ is that employment organisations are familiar with this method and know how to appreciate it. The disadvantages, however, a numerous. It shows that the owner fulfills the minimum requirements, but not the extra’s which enrichen the competences. Next to this it reflects the skills and competences in a certain moment of time, but how to register and recognise this during the ‘Life Long Learning process’. These extra’s and developments can be gathered and shown in a portfolio and since we don’t want to walk around with loads of papers, it needs to be digitalised. Although the advantages of digital portfolio’s are numerous, they are not commonly used in real life practice. How come?
