This paper shows how informal learning experiences can be integrated into institutional formal learning processes by using blog-based networked ePortfolios. First, we briefly introduce into the realm of learning in distributed environments like personal learning environments and elaborate on the role of ePortfolios. Second, we show how ePortfolios function as a means to support and evaluate informal learning. We describe a three-staged portfolio approach that encompasses the binding of informal experiences through reflection to assessment. Third, we then illustrate how this approach can technically be implemented by using weblogs as a distributed feed network. Fourth, we exemplify how this approach is used in a co-curricular study programme at the University of Augsburg and in the ICAMP project. Finally, we discuss how the proposed portfolio approach that was explored in the two use-cases cannot be supported by the state of the art in software and briefly outlines current shortcomings and suggestions for future work.
