Today’s employers want college students who can highlight their learning in connection with real-world experiences. This course will guide you through the process of building an online e-portfolio. The e-portfolio development process will help you to identify deep connections between your learning, your experiences,
and your life-goals. Engage in hands-on activities exploring your personal strengths; organize and document your accomplishments; and highlight evidence
of your learning in creative and visual ways that showcase your skills and knowledge. You will conclude this course with the skillset and a multimedia framework necessary to maintain a personal e-portfolio that will help you to stay focused on your goal, give you a place to store your significant learning experiences, and that can grow and change as you do. (Open to students of all grade-levels and all academic majors, no former experience with technology is necessary).
