i personally find literature helpful in developing the intellectural capacity more especially those who impact the society and their dealings and private life affects the society, like i find very many young people following Angelo Izama and what he does, me inclusive, he provokes people to think positively, bravo Izama’s.
The idea of an ePortfolios is an interesting one. Many unverisities are moving towards problem based learning (PBL) where learners undertake to solve problems within various contexts in their field of study. I think building a portfolio is one way to demonstrate original thinking and amount of work donea0rather than assessment based on recall of information and facts.
