Students are guided through the step-by-step ePortfolio creation process, starting with their professional goals statement and ending with their completed ePortfolio containing their resume. Students are encouraged to establish connections between coursework and the professional skills they will need when they graduate and begin searching for a job.

ePortfolio at Bronx Community College – Utilizing the Digication portfolio platform, the Bronx Community College ePortfolio is an online space where students can present themselves and their work to different audiences. They put writing, pictures, sound, or video in their ePortfolios; post and reflect on their work, articulate academic and professional goals, and map out their future.

ePortfolio at Queensborough Community College– The Queensborough ePortfolio is the place where students track their academic progress, share their accomplishments with friends and family worldwide, and demonstrate their talents to future employers or schools.

The Macaulay Eportfolio Gateway–At Macaulay Honors College, students create a wide range of different types of eportfolio, including class eportfolios, “bloggy” eportfolios, and more traditional eportfolios.  The system is designed to give students the maximum possible range of freedom for design, collection, reflection, presentation and interaction.

This Ain’t Yo Mama’s E-Portfolio– A blog post from Jim Groom’s (former CUNY GC student and Macaulay Instructional Technology Fellow) well-known “bavatuesdays” blog about e-portfolio theory and research. The current discussion is aimed at ways of making “fixed” e-portfolios” into more “portfolio-ing” practices (through the use of Web 2.0 tools). It makes reference to several CUNY e-portfolio projects.

ePortfolios @ CSIThe ePortfolio Project at CSI is a program that works to develop stronger writing and critical thinking skills in college freshman encouraging collaboration, learning reflective practice, and reaching across disciplines. Through assignments, group projects, and reflective practice, students make the transition to college, make personal discoveries, and begin seeing themselves in their future. Through a number of select pilot programs, the ePortfolio at CSI has become a resource for collaboration among students, faculty, and across campus departments and programs to support various student success initiatives.
