The need to move user's account data from one system to another in an efficient way becomes more important. To fulfill the need, a small community of system developers has created Leap2A, a simple specification for transferring data between e-portfolio systems and tools. Leap2A has been successfully implemented in the ePortfolio solutions.
... , working with ePortfolio still depends on the availability of internet access and in a web based environment. The mobile users will need some more solutions which they can work with their ePortfolio anytime and anywhere.</p>The purpose of this paper is to create a mobile application for displaying, modifying, and creating ePortfolio based on Leap2a file as an alternative solution. Leap2A file was exported from one ePortfolio system and the content was extracted and analyzed. The users should be able to open and manipulate the information in the Leap2A file using the application, which later should be imported again to the ePortfolio System without problem and without losing their information. The testing showed that the application could open, display, and manipulate user's information contained in Leap2A file. Additional feature was the ability to create new ePortfolio for the user who do not have ePortfolio yet. Both the modified and generated Leap2A file could be imported to ePortfolio system successfully.
