Abstract: A necessity to find solutions on how to make the learning process more motivating and efficient still exists. This paper describes the scaffolding e-Portfolio system developed by the research team of Distance Education Study Centre, Riga Technical University. This system differs from traditional e-Portfolio systems by utilizing a motivating approach in the acquiring of competencies, involvement in group-work, increasing responsibility for personal and peer achievements, and comparison of scores, study results, assessments and competency development levels during the whole course study period in two educational systems: university study portal “ORTUS” and e-Portfolio. The introduced e-Portfolio algorithmic model ensures the collection of data (marks and recommendations) from all assessments and opening them up for the appropriate e-Portfolio group members; consequently, students have an excellent possibility to improve their outcomes and develop required competencies. The study also shows correlations between learner activity levels within e-Portfolio and their learning outcomes.
