  • Introduction to the Web Portfolio
    This web design lesson introduces the concept of the portfolio and defines the electronic portfolio and Web portfolio. In print, electronic form, and through the Web, the portfolio has become a standard tool for success in many disciplines.

The web design lesson frames the Web portfolio as a tool for persuasion and lifelong learning. I introduce many different concepts, cases, and relevant information from literature and Web reviews. I want to stimulate your ideas...

    The arts have embraced portfolios forever. The ability to show a collection of work is critical in selling artwork to others. In today’s highly specialized, highly competitive professional marketplace, more artists are embracing digital portfolios in addition to high resolution print portfolios. One such field is architecture. At the University of California Berkeley, the architecture depart- ment provides a specialized portfolio class in which students learn about creating digital portfolios and all of their different media components which include print, video, and Web. The course description has a paragraph that does more than define the coursework; it also defines the inevitable place of the Web portfolio in commerce...

  • The Web Portfolio Fosters Valuable Learning Experiences
    The Web portfolio conceptualization, design, and development processes call upon hard and soft skills that are required to accomplish each task. Hierarchal task analysis of Web portfolio creation involves providing sequential informa- tion from the ground up. Although creating the Web portfolio requires a systematic approach to concept development all the way through to final output, Bloom’s Taxonomy of Cognitive Domain illustrates the same learning outcomes that fit into the Web portfolio process through its course. Bloom identified six levels within...

  • Skills Fostered by the Web Portfolio Process
    The very idea of creating a Web portfolio makes people cringe. This is especially evident in those who do not embrace technology and the Internet. But the Web portfolio and the creation process that is needed to effectively create one is a lifelong learning, skill building process in which the creator comes away with more than technical skills, but also personal reflections that can be shared and may evolve into a greater idea. The ability to take a personal inventory of creative content and software and design skills is invaluable in the lifelong learning process. You can take a step back and think about the things you know and compare them to the things you want to...
