Building a Digital Portfolio = Building for a Successful Future

Have you ever considered/tried having students create a “digital portfolio”? It’s an electronic collection of student’s work—from blog posts to papers to images, videos, and projects.  This is a great way for students to store, collect, and track their accomplishments throughout the semester (and their entire academic career!). Check out a few of our favorite free webtools to get students started with creating their own portfolios:

Google Sites:
We are huge fans of Google Sites because it is so easy to navigate and simple to use! Create a website in seconds and instantly begin uploading photos, adding videos and text, and embedding other neat features! Google Sites is great because it integrates with other Google Apps, making it a great tool for UIS students.

eduClipper:
educlipperWe like this tool because it’s unique in the way it allows users to select clippings from articles, websites, and other items they have bookmarked online, stored in their cloud space, or items they have saved.
