What they have accomplished and where they are going. That is the theme of this semester’s group of e-portfolios.
We continue our practice of creating responsive HTML digital resumes and portfolios.
You’ll find links to their writing samples as well as a full array of student creations, including: Magazine, Infographic, Brochure, Media Kit, Tutorial, Campaigns, Survey and Research, Blog and a Social Media Release.
Please welcome the final projects from our Fall 2013 Style & Design class. These students spent the whole semester preparing many projects for incorporation into this project. And, of course, they edited and prepared the website, too. Give them and look. You’ll be glad you did.
NOTE:Some students choose to take down their projects at the conclusion of the class. In earlier classes, some students may have allowed their domains to expire. So, please forgive any dormant links you may encounter.
Here are the digital eportfolios for Auburn University PR students from Spring 2013. We like to call these digital resumes and portfolios. We’ve been creating them in classes for over a decade. Recently, a movement among universities across the country has gained strength and they prefer to call them eportfolios. To me that term is very Web 1.0 … but, we are happy to see many others now agree that creating a digital version of a student’s resume and portfolio is very important. So, we won’t quibble over terms. (Cross-posted in our Auburn PR Tumblr blog.)
This semester we did something new. In the recent past, we created both a static HTML and mobile version of the digital resumes and portfolios. With the onset of HTML5 and responsive HTML, I decided to let the students purchase a responsive HTML template to use for their final projects. We still learn HTML, but now they learn how to create a static site (or dynamic, as in a blog) that will work on any screen. These resumes should perform well on your smartphone, tablet and computer screens. Let me know what you think.
These students are wonderful. Most have graduated. I suggest that you will be well served if you pursue them for your agency or organization. They’re sharp! They’re fun! You’ll be lucky to have them, too!
Here they are, in no particular order. Well, actually they are in the order they filled out the online form to share their URLs. By the way, we also did a printed portfolio project from the content represented on their websites. I’ve suggested that for years, but this was the first year it was mandatory for this class.
FYI: This semester’s group marks over a decade of digital resume creation by Auburn University PR students. I’m grateful to all of them for humoring me and working so hard on these projects. War Eagle!
Here they are! The Fall 2011 Auburn PR Student Digital Resumes and Portfolios from my Style & Design students. Links to their sites and a slideshow are below. Click the first thumbnail and the slideshow will appear.
Many of these students just graduated. As always, I’m sure they want me to share the mantra under which all of these sites were created … Hire Them!
Good students all, I heartily recommend them to you all.
