In 2013 the University of the Sunshine Coast undertook an ePortfolio Early AdopterPhase using PebblePad. As part of this phase the Master of Midwifery, offered bothfull time and part time, was the first postgraduate program to use ePortfolios at theUniversity. ePortfolios were introduced to the same cohort of students across twosemesters; Semester 1 NUR700 Theory for Midwifery Practice (14 students) and inSemester 2 NUR729 Midwifery Practicum (11 students). Implementation support wasprovided by the Centre for the Support and Advancement of Learning and Teaching(C~SALT). However, the implementation phase was short meaning that teaching staffand students learnt to use this new technology simultaneously.
