Previous efforts have been made to develop a model for a university students' e-portfolio and determine university students’ attitudes toward that model; however, to date, few studies have been conducted. This study employed a descriptive and experimental design: interviews with 20 specialists in educational science were conducted to develop and gain consensus on the proposed model for a university students' e-portfolio; and, following verification of its validity and reliability, a 17-item questionnaire was distributed among an experimental group of 90 students (43 male, 47 female) at Al-Shoubak University College to assess their attitudes toward the proposed e-portfolio model. The interviews resulted in a proposed model of a university students' e-portfolio comprising 10 components: student biography, course plan, reports and research, homework, projects and experiments, activities, summaries and conclusions, scientific material, audio and video clips, and samples of student performance. In addition, the results of the questionnaire revealed that the students' attitudes toward the proposed model were generally positive. Consequently, it is recommended that faculty members introduce the university students' e-portfolio into teaching practice.
