The purpose of creating and maintaining an electronic portfolio is for students to reflect on the semester in Digital Design. The portfolio should include a statement of the student’s goals, philosophy of education, and files which showcase the student’s best work. The work selected by the student for the electronic portfolio should be organized and reflected upon.
Due: June 2, 2017
Give your e-portfolio a professional title that clearly indicates what it is. You could simply use “<your first and last names>’s E-Portfolio” or use something more creative but still informative.
The “final” versions of designs/work you include must be error-free and polished, though you may also want to include less-than-polished drafts in order to illustrate how a particular piece of writing evolved or what your process looked like.
The overall design should effectively embody the design principles mentioned in the rubric.
The e-portfolio should be a professional website with stable pages, although it can have a blog component. If you have expertise in coding and web design, feel fee to build your e-portfolio from scratch or adapt any existing platform. If you do not have expertise in this area, we recommend that you use WordPress, selecting a “theme” (i.e., template) with a simple, clean design that can be easily adapted into a website portfolio. When browsing themes to try out, read under “Details” what they were designed primarily to support, and consider how their “look and feel” might resonate with your intended audience(s). In addition to adaptable themes created by design experts, WordPress includes a thorough set of help resources.
