Abstract—The aim of this paper is to explore students’ perceptions of the electronic version of the European Language Portfolio (eELP). The participants of this study were students of undergraduate and graduate degrees in education at two private universities in Spain. Both groups used the digital platform of the European Language Portfolio developed by Spanish Service for Internationalization of Education (SEPIE). The authors used a quantitative survey based on two questionnaires that were used in previously published and cited research, administered through Google Forms. The results of this study indicate that both undergraduate and graduate students value the eELP positively, however graduate students were consistently less positive about this tool. The researchers identified statistically significant levels of dissimilarity in four of the nine items on the survey. The findings of this study offer valuable insights into which aspects of the ePortfolio are most relevant to graduate students and which ones to undergraduate students. Additionally, students’ comments complement the survey findings and shed light on what components of eELP could be improved. It is hoped that this research will encourage educators to consider these aspects in the implementation of the eELP in higher education.

Keywords—electronic European Language Portfolio (eELP), Portafolio Europeo de las Lenguas electrónico (e-PEL +14), educational technology, higher education
