Creating an ePortfolio From Scratch
What Are The Benefits of Creating an ePortfolio From Scratch?
Creating an ePortfolio from scratch is very similar to creating an ePortfolio from a template. When you create an ePortfolio from a template, your ePortfolio will automatically start with a set of pre-named sections and pages that show what is required of you for a course. Sometimes creating an ePortfolio from a template forces the user in one direction and doesn't allow for much creativity. That's where the beauty of creating an ePortfolio from scratch comes in.
If you create an ePortfolio from scratch, you will start with one 'Home' section and a 'Welcome' page. Creating an ePortfolio from scratch gives you more freedom to upload sections of your choice, allowing for more personalization and design.
Our long term goals are:
- Peer coaching through ePortfolio Coaches. Coaches can assist students in creating and revising ePortfolios as well as digital artifacts they may include in their ePortfolio (ex: podcasts, slideshows, videos).
- Developing a Media lab. The media lab will be a space to support student working with and creating digital artifacts for their ePortfolios.
If you have a question for us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to assist you!
Students were recently integrated with Microsoft Office 365 and as such have Lync accounts. Coming soon, you'll be able to IM with a ePortfolio coach.
More information about Lync can be found here.
