Eportfolio is a concept and practice that provides creative opportunities using technology for profiling a person’s achievements, career aspirations and contribution to learning and teaching in their academic institution and professions . Our experiences at Australian Catholic University (ACU) indicated that adoption and implementation of Eportfolio technology in a multiple campus environment posed significant challenges when switching from a pilot to a university-preferred hosting service product. Staff and student artefact profiling using an Eportfolio hosting system in a decentralised university environment identified a different interpretation of the University vision, pedagogy, expected usage and support culminating in change management implementation issues. The aim of our paper is to consider and accommodate feedback from the global community to inform new approaches and methods that could be explored to streamline and improve communication, change management and adoption of new technologies in our context.
