Abstract: The e-portfolio is an educational resource that has been increasingly implemented in the new learning culture. In order to improve this tool and observe its advantages and disadvantages together with the competences required to develop it, a qualitative study has been designed. This research has been conducted under the work package 4 “Selecting and testing IT tools” in the frame of the International IRNet project (Marie Curie Actions of the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013). From a qualitative approach, an open questionnaire was planned and validated to inquire students about the implementation of e-portfolios using wiki tools during the development of a class throughout their university studies at the University of Extremadura, Spain. Six dimensions related to the usefulness, difficulties, competences, assessment and potential improvements of e-portfolios emerged from the study. In this sense, this research determines the convenience of the tool with respect to applying knowledge to practice, promoting reflection and also managing information. However, it is indispensable to preclude difficulties regarding the lack of information together with potential technical problems that come up when first used. Finally, it has been detected that assessing e-portfolios with continuous and positive feedback not only motivates students but also makes them expand their skills..
