E-Portfolio Project Workflow

Example of a Project Workflow for an E-Portfolio

Choosing a topic and conducting research

  1. Select a topic for your project and conduct background research on that topic
  2. Develop a thematic outline for your project. Outline the story you want to tell and think about what types of multimedia you will need to tell it.
  3. Conduct research on multimedia content for your topic - including the use of library resources
  4. Select your multimedia and save it for uploading to the Commons Blog later. (keep in mind things like image quality and resolution, etc.)
  5. Develop the metadata information for your selected multimedia content

Working with the E-Portfolio software

  1. Find and add media content to the Media Library as part of your collection.
  2. Select the most relevant media content to use in your final project page.
  3. Construct your project page - adding section headings, text, media, captions, and source information to guide a viewer through page.
