Probably the best resource I know on the subject is the Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL). The website http://www.aaeebl.org/ has tons of information, and the annual conference in Boston, as well as the regional conferences throughout the year, is fantastic (full disclosure, I'm on the board).
Your daughter could spend quite a bit of time perusing the site, or if she wants a quick survey of a few leading platforms, there's Patricia Donohue's comparative matrix of different platforms here http://www.aaeebl.org/Resources/Documents/Matrix.Exploring.ePortfolio.Technologies.2011-2012.xlsx (that's an excel spreadsheet, and a couple of years old, but still fairly accurate for what it covers). The webinar series on the AAEEBL site is also useful for people who want to drill down a bit into specific eportfolio systems.
For lots of good scholarly research on eportfolios and their implications, I recommend the International Journal of ePortfolio http://www.theijep.com/.
In CUNY, last time I counted, there were 11 different systems in use (sometimes more than one on an individual campus). Digication is quite popular, as is Epsilen. At Macaulay Honors College, our eportfolios are built in WordPress (http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios). Always happy to answer questions! (It's sort of one of my pet topics!)

> As an old time CIO at Arizona State University, whenever I had a question as to what is going on as far as technology at schools across the country, I would post to this list and always got great information. So when my daughter, who teaches at a small liberal arts school in the mid-west, called and asked me about e-portfolios I thought of this group. She has been asked by her president to investigate what is out there as far as e-portfolios so they can look into the feasibility if making something available to their students and faculty.
