My Online Academic Portfolio (ePortfolio) via Google Sites! - Dr. Jennifer T. Edwards


Over the weekend, I decided to create an electronic academic portfolio using Google Sites. I chose Google Sites because I plan to use the free, online software in the fall for the Professional Communication upper-level communication studies classes). 

Here's the link -

Should I include anything else? Is anything missing?

I think that all students should have a competitive chance to obtain a job after graduating from college and it seems that electronic portfolios will help them during their journey.

I have to learn how to use the technology and then actively use the technology for at least two weeks before teaching others how to use the technology! :) Hopefully, by the fall semester, I can help my students develop their own online portfolios! :)

  1. I really like what you have so far! Thanks for alerting me to the possibilities of using Google Sites this way!

  2. Thanks for the feedback Amanda! Our students have not been happy with the fact that they lose their Chalk and Wire portfolio after they graduate... That is when they need the online portfolio the most...during the job search... :)


  3. Had not thought about that. Since I work with so many students who do use Chalk and Wire (in the College of Education), I really need to get up to speed with Google Sites so I can encourage them to use it concurrently. Thanks again!
