The Next Generation ePortfolio—a new ePortfolio interface, with a new learning and visual architecture—is now available to all LaGuardia students. More than 8,000 students are already creating ePortfolios in this new environment. The First Year Seminar introduces students to a core ePortfolio template that they can use throughout their LaGuardia journey. The Next Generation ePortfolio will more effectively leverage the power of the portfolio to connect different parts of the student learning experience on one dynamic platform.
The redesigned ePortfolio interface is more robust and flexible. It offers students more visual design features to help them build their abilities to communicate with the full power of digital media. A mobile version allows students to interact and develop their ePortfolios more continuously, integrating different forms of digital media. The new interface also offers new tools to facilitate faculty and student collaboration. To learn more, click here.
When building your ePortfolio in the First Year Seminar course, you will have the time and resources to start strong. Here are four areas that you will want to explore as you move along:
Go to the MyLaGuardia portal and click on the Digication icon to get started. Start creating an ePortfolio using the template for your respective First Year Seminar course. As you move along, think creatively about what additional sections you can add to reflect on your college experience; both inside and outside of the classroom.
Don't just stick what you see on the template. Add text, images, colors, and elements that reflect who you are as a student and who you aspire to be in your future career. Move modules around and place images on your ePortfolio that will help the reader better understand you.
Don't forget to 'Save' and 'Publish'. But before that, be sure to know who you are sharing your ePortfolio with. There are different privacy settings that you can apply. Think about your audience when you publish content and how your content will impact their understanding of your experience at LaGuardia.
