Abstract: Course portfolio is a set of documents that focuses on the unfolding of a single course, from conception to results. It is an attempt to document one’s teaching practices in a particular course over a period of time. It is about process, about evidence relating to teaching, learning, and development. Performing the processes of preparing course portfolio is part of lectures’ duties. Theses processes include: collecting, storing, accessing and retrieving. All of these processes are normally done manually by lecturers. These manual processes lead the following problems emerged in the workplace: 1) storage problem, (2) retrieving information problem, (3) paper organization, (4) time spent preparing and processing paperwork, and (5) difficulty in evaluating the level of performance of current course. To overcome the above problems, Smart Electronic Portfolio (SEP) web-based system has been developed. The system has three stakeholders who they themselves are users to the systems: the lecturers, the administrative staffs and the students. For the lecturers, the system enables them to create and to manage course portfolio electronically. The system automates all the storing, accessing and updating of the course portfolio. In addition, the system has the capability that allows users to share and exchange knowledge about the courses. The system also allows lecturers to receive assignment from students online. For the administrative staff, the system provides the ability to audit and track lecturers’ course portfolios. The system also supports administrative users with a data mining tools to analyze and to evaluate the course portfolio. Finally for the students, the system enables them to submit their assignments online. The system enables students to create their curriculum vitae online.
