Senior vocational education students are increasingly expected to direct their own learning. This, however, is not easy. These students need help developing the skills necessary for self-directed learning. An electronic portfolio may prove beneficial, assuming that students receive sufficient coaching. This study found that some of the teacher-coaching can be replaced with self-coaching while retaining the positive effects on the development of self-direction and motivation. It is, however, essential that students are given the room to make their own choices while receiving sufficient guidance.
