Week 3 – Assignment 1
Throughout your degree, you will be building a personal electronic portfolio, or ePortfolio. The ePortfolio will serve as a tool for you to track your professional and academic progress. In the capstone or last class, you will use the ePortfolio to reflect on your development across the degree. Once you graduate, it can also be used to demonstrate your skills and competencies to potential employers and the professional community.
This learning activity introduces you to Portfolium, the ePortfolio tool being used by this university. As an Ashford student, you not only will have access to Portfolium during your time at Ashford, but you will retain lifetime unlimited access after leaving the university, without fees or capacity limit.
