Abstract: This paper presents a new approach for setting criteria towards evaluating e-portfolio use within educational context. The urge for considering e-portfolio systems in current educational context is becoming more vivid, as many systems are developed to address the need for gathering artifact used within educational context. The wide development of web 2.0 technologies has given the opportunities for many e-portfolio systems to emerge and provide different services and functionalities that are used for different aims and objectives that are not related to educational use. The need for differentiating the offered services and functionalities is becoming necessity as different educational establishments have been found using e-portfolios that are not designed for educational purposes. This study, managed to present six different e-portfolio systems that are found suitable for educational purposes, and have set the criteria for differentiations that will present the most suitable e-portfolio system within educational context. Those same criteria can be used with any newly designed e-portfolio system, and they can be looked at as a guide map for selecting the most appropriate e-portfolio system.
