Abstract A necessity to find solutions how make learning process more motivating and efficient still exists. This paper describes scaffolding ePortfolio system developed by researchers’ team of Distance Education Study Centre, Riga Technical University. This system differs from traditional ePortfolio systems by motivating approach in acquiring of competences, involvement in group-work, increasing responsibility both for own and peer achievements, and comparison of scores, study results, assessments and competence development levels along the whole course study period in two educational systems: university’s study portal “ORTUS” and ePortfolio ones. Introduced ePortfolio algorithmic model ensures the collection of the data (marks and recommendations) from all assessments and opening them up for the appropriate ePortfolio group members; consequently, students have an excellent possibility to improve their outcomes and develop required competences. The study shows also correlations between learners’ activity levels within ePortfolio and their learning outcomes.
