Abstract: Nowadays, informal learning is very much part of everyone’s life, even when individuals are not aware that they engage in informal learning. Therefore it is vital that individuals and organisations become aware of the value of informal learning. Not only that, but individuals need to take control of their informal learning and make it known to others. In this article we illustrate how e-portfolios, as a store of learning activities and resulting products can support reflection on the learning process by allowing learners to monitor their learning behaviour. Findings indicate that ease of use is crucial. User interface design should accommodate the needs of the learner to promote uptake of the tool. The e-portfolio has to be an integral part of the learner’s working and learning processes, and assist the learner by tracking and presenting his learning activities for easy inclusion into the e-portfolio.
