Abstract

This paper attemilts to share the teaclffig of descriptive writing using electronic portfolio (e-portrclio) in the multirnedia lab where students can write according to their o\lxi pace. Given individual electronic folders, they can continue ivriting whenever they want" The students can revise iheir first dlaft following conments given by the tutor or peers, or continue to the nexl assignment put in the tutot's folder. Microsoft Word also provicles tools, "h?ck changes " and "insert and view comments", which enable students to freely and responsibly accept or reject suggestions given by the tutor. As a result, corrections, comments and revisions luwe caused improvements in describing things in more detailed ways, and less on the grarrunar and vocabulary mastery. F{owever, only 25Yo of the students think their progress relates to an abilif to better describe things; the rest believe their inprovements are urore in gramflur and vocabulary mastery. Eporfolio provides a iot of practice, which enables the students ts directtry read cornrnents and conestlons given by the tutor and peers. Another signi-ficant finding is that the tutor must use various delivery teehniques to cope with studerlts'differeut leaming preferenees.
