Implementation of webfolios will have a great impact on both breadth and depth of the curriculum and on student learning. The curriculum and student learning will become more meaningful to faculty and students. Faculty would facilitate student self-learning and evaluate student performance outcomes while students would actively engage themselves in learning and take responsibilities to produce evidence of their learning.
The webfolios may also be used as an authentic student outcomes assessment for the courses offered through distance learning as students are able to share their ideas and feedback. Their work-in-progress webfolios will be accessible to one another through the Web during the entire course period in a learning community created by technology.   The webfolios provide a new perspective on student evaluation where students would learn to experience the synergy of collaborative learning rather than competitiveness experienced during testing or examinations.  By sharing their resources obtained with one another, students become true partners in learning and develop their professional collegial relationships while they are in class.This also will overcome the isolation often felt by the students in distance learning classes.
