What is Portfolium?

Portfolium is an academic portfolio network allowing users to showcase their education and work accomplishments and connect with other professionals. Your Portfolium profile allows you to organize and display previous educational and professional content. You can upload images, videos (YouTube, Vimeo), PDFs, text documents, and more to your portfolio. Portfolium allows users to connect with people they already know, as well as network with new contacts based on common interests. You can add specific pieces of content to showcase your qualifications. You can also view content posted by other users to discover how they accomplished their work, you can like their content, and comment or message them for advice.

Why would you want to create an ePortfolio?

Faculty may wish to create an online portfolio to capture examples of their achievements in teaching, research, and service. This can be easily shared with colleagues and can provide a platform to promote networking. For students, creating an ePortfolio might give them the edge when looking for their first job after college. In a study conducted by the Association of American College and Universities, more than four in five employers stated that an ePortfolio “would be useful to ensure that job applicants have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their company or organization.” Additionally, many graduate programs are now requiring ePortfolios as part of their application process.
