To make portfolios more authentic many forms of student work can be digitized and incorporated into both physical and electronic portfolios. Peripherals allow greater flexibility in the types and quality of materials that represent the learner's progress. Student products and performances of all types can be recorded into an electronic portfolio more easily and efficiently than into a physical portfolio.
