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!
We will embark on a new version of eportfolios (digital resumes & portfolios) this semester.
Using HTML5 templates, students may now create a digital resume that will work on smartphones, tablets and computers. See the example I created for the students at Aubie.me. The final projects will be shared with all at PRProspects.me as always.
Just like other eportfolio projects being adopted by universities these days, our class has been building these for over a decade. We follow the same principles the new projects aim to provide:
● Synthesize learning experiences
● Showcase skills and abilities
● Our project expands existing capstone or senior projects, involving industry advisors, and responding to expectations of their disciplines
● The project emphasizes:
→ Effective Communication
→ Critical Thinking through connections & contextualization
→ Technical Competence
→ Visual Literacy
Note: these key elements come from the Auburn University eportfolio PPT attached.
