Creating online student/class portfolios

What happens to an assignment after it is submitted by a student? More often than not the student is given a grade or maybe some feedback for revision. Students then move on to the next thing that will be graded. The previous submission is abandoned and this cycle continues throughout the semester leaving a trail of dead and forgotten assignments. While this approach has been the status quo there is a different approach. This alternate model is one that promotes both students and faculty.


Creating online student/class portfolios

Online portfolios don’t take a ton of effort to set up or maintain. A common platform used (but not the only one) is WordPress. The great thing about WordPress is that it’s free and there is training available through the CII. Students post their submissions to the class portfolio instead of directly to faculty. Faculty have control to review content before it goes live and an added wrinkle is that peers can easily review content and provide feedback as well. An added benefit is that students seem to produce higher quality work when they know it will be open to review by their peers and the public.

The online portfolio also creates a space that allows for different types of content to be utilized. Here is an example of a class portfolio that used Soundcloud (think Youtube but for audio) to host a collection of student created podcasts. Students researched topics, wrote scripts, recorded, and produced their audio submissions.

Dr. Molly Basset’s RELS 4080/6080 Religious Studies Class Portfolio: 


An assignment that may have ended with submitting a paper to the professor can instead live on. With more classes following this models students leave with portfolio showcasing their skills and accomplishments that can be leveraged outside of school. The portfolio approach does more than helping just students.

Faculty should also take advantage of the benefits of portfolios. Looking to share what’s going on in your course with peers? Or maybe you want to help give a potential employer insight into what makes you awesome as a faculty member. This can be done by creating a portfolio showcasing the what’s going on in your courses.  Check the link below to see an example that shows off student work from a variety of different assignments.

    Thanks to the author for these reflections and the information provided. The student’s portfolio has become an integral part of learning and is a modern pedagogical tool. An electronic portfolio is a collection of works and achievements of a particular person available online in the public domain. An electronic portfolio allows you to demonstrate individual achievements or progress over a certain period of time, reflect the level of knowledge, skills and abilities acquired. A portfolio can take various forms, ranging from a standard document or infographic posted on a web resource, to blogs and full-fledged websites. A collection of works or projects can also be part of an electronic portfolio. In practice, a portfolio can include any material or data that reflects the process of gaining experience, as well as various types of awards, awards, certificates, reviews and recommendations. I gathered this information from educational streams on Twitch, in which teachers talk about modern methods of education. I saw quite a lot of such streams there and noticed that in most cases they were published by accounts to which more than 22 thousand subscribers were subscribed! I am sure that in order to achieve such indicators, their owners used the services of to quickly increase the number of subscribers.
