Barbara, Our school was looking into digital portfolios as well and I was in charge of finding the best platform. We initially were planning on using PBworks wikis, but the time that would be needed to create a unique wiki for each student and train them in its use would be rather time-consuming. For the past year I have been working with the developer of edu20.org to develop a student portfolio feature. Edu20.org is a free, web-based Learning Management System (LMS) that allows teachers to deliver content and instruction online. It also has a very user-friendly portfolio feature. I would high recommend this over all other alternatives. I have used Blackboard, WebCT, AngelLearning, Sakai, MIT Openware, Mahara, google sites, pbworks, wikispaces, and many others and I can promise that you will find no other platform that offers the features and usability that edu20.org offers.
