I appreciate the work of these fourteen students. Hire them and/or select them for internships.
Each project contains two major sections. First, there is the resume, an HTML version of the usual Word document. Second, you’ll find the digital portfolio. It contains samples from the work product of these students over their college career.
One new addition to the project is video. Students created video interviews with students, faculty and staff around Auburn. All of those interviews were posted at the Loveliest Village Journal, too.
Thanks to a product recommendation from Edelman’s Rick Murray, the students used Pure Digital’s Flip camera to shoot the video. Offering remarkable video quality (given the cost) and ease to operate, the Flip camera worked quite well. Microsoft’s Movie Maker software edited and produced the interviews. We kept the length of the videos between one and three minutes.
The camera is only $90 and Movie Maker is a free download. So, I treated the camera as if it were a book purchase for the class. Often texts cost much more, $100 to $125 is not uncommon, so this was a reasonable expectation for the students. We will continue using the camera in Fall semester classes.
OK, here they are. Great students, if you ask me. Give them your consideration, please.
