View this video from Penn State about why students need e-portfolios and how their students are creating portfolios using a blogging platform.  Also, look at these blog entries to see what some of their students have done with their e-portfolios:  Andrea Schwander (Geography); Andrew Vincent (Energy, Business, and Finance); and Dan Shaffer (Marketing, Psychology, and Sociology).

Professional Portfolios

Cheryl Ball:  Cheryl used a self-hosted version of WordPress for her tenure portfolio.

Clancy Ratliff:  Clancy uses Drupal as a content management system for her blog.  She has included a professional portfolio on her blog site.

Sharon Gerald:  I used WordPress to create my portfolio.  Like Cheryl, I used the self-hosted version of WordPress, but I could have created the same type of portfolio on WordPress.com by simply signing up for a free account.  I have an earlier version of my portfolio on Blogger.  I created it as a sample for students.
