Abstract For three years the first year civil and infrastructure engineering students have used Wikis to facilitate the project management and design process of their environmental design exercise and the Engineers Without Borders project. This process has proven successful, with many students requesting access to Wikis to support their group interaction in subsequent years. More recently ePortfolios have been introduced and the opportunity has been taken to trial their suitability to facilitate group work. This paper describes and compares the main characteristics of the Campus Pack/TeamsLX Wiki extension to Blackboard and the PebblePad electronic portfolio. Student feedback is reported to support observations by facilitators.
