Abstract: Students in teacher education programs throughout the United States are often required to develop professional teaching portfolios. Portfolios are traditionally presented in loose-leaf binders combining text and pictures. However, with increasing availability of a wide variety of computer technologies, preservice teachers can develop electronic multimedia versions of portfolios. The purpose of this article is to describe a project designed to develop electronic portfolios on CD-ROM and discuss school administrators reactions to them. Findings suggest that administrators favor electronic portfolios over traditional versions. The development process and implications for teacher education programs are also offered.
