Objectives

You have already created an E-Portfolio site as part of your course in Level 3 (Year 2, Semester 1). For this semester, you will build and add onto your existing site. The e-Portfolio is important because it allows you to showcase your work to potential employers and to keep track of your accomplishments as a student.

Instructions

1. Move your existing Level 3 Projects to a new page called “Level 3 Projects”.
2. Update your Home Page with a list of skills you have used or learned during this semester.
3. Include a ONE paragraph self-reflection on your progress this semester.
4. Look at the E-Portfolio Project from last semester and make sure the information is complete. You will need to update the projects and reflection section for last semester. You will be marked on the completeness of your information!
5. In your existing Project Page, put in all of the project details for this semester. Make sure that each project has a detailed explanation of “what the project is about” and “what you have learned from the project”, with a link to the project documents (what you or your group have produced).
6. On your Home Page, create a Google search box. It can be a search box or it can be a “Google Related Link” (http://services.google.com/setup.html?accept=on) box.
7. In the Google Project, you learned about Blogs and how to create one. You were also asked to create one to keep track of your weekly progress. Link your blog to your e-portfolio site. Make sure the blog is in English!!
