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.
