How can I get started?

 

Please reach out to Dr. Danielle Jackson (d1jackson@odu.edu) of the Department of Communication & Theatre Arts.  The COMM ePortfolio team will gladly provide you with resources, sample work, or consult on how to incorporate the Communication ePortfolio in part, or as a whole, into your class.

 

To design your own ePorfolio, check out www.wix.com to get started, and check out the samples below.

 

Other sites might have an initial free start up (SquareSpace for example, Canva, Spark or Wordpress through ODU), but in many cases a monthly fee is likely.  WIX has multiple (free) templates for the variety of industries our students might enter into.  Wix works well with both PC and Mac users, and is relatively easy to use!  It is mostly ‘point, click, and drag’—and while faculty and students might find that initial set-up is time-consuming, it is likely due to the options available while choosing a design and internal set-up that reflects an individuals career, specialties, industry, etc. (Samples will be provided to you for assistance).

 

The main goal for integrating the Communication ePortfolio into a class is to assist students in identifying, reflecting, and promoting their strengths as emerging professionals (or re-emerging for those that are seeking a change of career or returning to school).  An ePortfolio is a modern way to design, develop, and archive work that highlights disciplinary writing and samples of professional documents.
