There are many website-builders — or platforms — that can be used to create an ePortfolio. The ePortfolio Project supports Wix, Weebly, and WordPress. Each of these platforms has an easy-to-use interface (no coding required) and extensive support features to help you learn to navigate the technology.
The Choose a Platform handout rates the platforms on categories such as ease of use, customization, and user support to assist you in finding the platform that best fits your needs and goals. Once you have selected a platform, use the resources below to begin crafting the pages of your ePortfolio. The getting started packets will guide you through creating an account on your chosen platform.
The platform support pages provide tutorials, answers to common questions, informational articles, and much more. If you would like additional support, staff at the Innovation & Research Commons, located on the first floor of the RBD Library, are available to answer technology questions. Students also have the opportunity to check out equipment and record audio in their studio space
There are several options within the platforms that allow you to share, protect, and enhance your ePortfolio. The Technical Details handout provides descriptions of important features such as password protection and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
