My Portfolio

Over the last two years I have studied the many software, services and strategies available to construct electronic portfolios. A few of my favorite examples are listed under the links. This WordPress software could also be used as portfolio-development tool, using the Page Functions, which I am demonstrating here.


Introduction

Welcome to my second WordPress e-portfolio. I am exploring the capabilities of using this system to maintain electronic portfolios as part of my research on implementation of online electronic portfolio systems. Click on one of the links at the bottom to see the pages that I have decided to include in this version of my portfolio. You can read my biography, see the artifacts that I have identified as my best work, and read my reflections about creating this portfolio and my future goals. If you want to see all of the artifacts in my portfolio, select Portfolio-at-a-glance. If you follow a link to an artifact a new window will open and if you want to return to the portfolio, close the top window.

Every portfolio has a purpose. My purpose for developing this portfolio is to show my skills in developing an electronic portfolio using any number of tools. After reviewing all of my artifacts (see my Portfolio at a Glance) I found five general categories of competencies:

  1. Electronic Portfolio Competency – Knowledge, Skills and Experience
  2. Digital Storytelling Competency – Digital Video Editing Skills
  3. Technology Competency – Multimedia & Web Page Authoring Skills
  4. Teaching & Instructional Design Competency – Presentations
  5. Writing & Assessment Competency (My Publications)
