This paper provides an overview of some of the basic features of ePortfolio systems regarding their maturity level, purpose, typology and potential for student reflection. It also presents the results of the evaluation of two ePortfolio systems based on a student survey. In order to choose the appropriate ePortfolio system to be implemented, two systems (Mahara and Elgg) were tested in a concrete setting of a hybrid university course. Both systems were positively evaluated but the Mahara system was better accepted in terms of most of the evaluated attributes.
