The Switzerland Chapter originates from the cooperation of two special interest groups at eduhub, a community for new learning technologies at Swiss Higher Education Institutions (www.eduhub.ch). These two groups, SIG ePortfolio and SIG PLE, are joining efforts to increase the use of e-portfolios and a personal learning environment at Swiss institutions. For this purpose, we look forward to exchanging ideas here, also with contacts beyond the borders of our country. Contributions in all four national languages are welcome, ideally followed by a summary in English.
