How to Create Your e-Portfolio

Directions for creating your e-Portfolio

You will need a location for storing all your projects online during this course and the rest of the educational technology program. If you already have a server or online storage account that allows others to access files, you may continue to use that one. If you do not have a hosting service or server space elsewhere, you will need to set up a location to store your projects.


We recommend that you store all your projects and other deliverables on PBWorks (as well as on your hard drive as a backup, of course). This will allow you to begin your e-Portfolio early in the educational technology program and to maintain it during and after you complete each course. Thus the creation of this wiki will serve as your e-Portfolio and as your location to store artifacts.

To do this, you will need to create your own wiki and add the e-Portfolio framework that you can use to "house" and link to your projects.


To begin, go to PBWorks and create your educational wiki. Because this will be used for your professional e-Portfolio, you can use your name as the title or create something original. Make sure your title is appropriate for a professional e-Portfolio. For example, The Educational Technology Hot Spot might be appropriate, but Hot Lips for Technology would certainly not.

PBWorks provides outstanding videos if you have any difficulty figuring out how to edit the wiki. Tutorials can be located at http://pbworks.com/content/supportcenter-viewall

Each tutorial runs approximately 30 seconds and will guide you through any procedure you may be experiencing challenges in doing.

After your wiki is created following all the steps above, go to the course wiki and add your wiki URL to the appropriate e-Portfolio page so that we are able to access it. Click here to access the page. Please add your link in the correct alphabetical order.
