Enhancing Learners’ Autonomy With E-Portfolios And Open Learner Models: A Literature Review

Sacha Kiffer, Éric Bertrand, Jérôme Eneau, Jean-Marie Gilliot, Geneviève Lameul

This article considers how e-portfolios improve learner autonomy in higher education, especially when using open learner models (OLMs). OLMs are artificial-intelligence-built representations of interactions between learners and instructional environments, where learners have access to data about their interaction patterns. The analysis is based on a review of 24 research articles. Results suggest that e-portfolios improve learner autonomy, especially by strengthening self-reflection capabilities. The review also identifies areas of e-portfolio and OLM research that require further investigation.
