What is Portfolium (Folio)?
"Portfolium is a free digital portfolio tool used to visually showcase academic and professional accomplishments and experiences. It is also a unique personal branding tool, which integrates a professional profile with social media and job-seeking features. The platform makes it very easy to search for and apply to jobs, and also to share work with friends, colleagues and the very employers you want to work for!"
In Canvas, the tool is called "Folio"!
Why are we building digital portfolios?
While you don't need to build your own portfolio, it's always a good idea to try out what your students are doing get ahead of their questions. Build out your profile, connect with other instructors using Folio here at the U, and check out some of the featured projects to see just how easy and great Portfolium can be!
