IMM 250 - Portfolio Development

Course Description

The focus of the Digital Portfolio course is to design an electronic portfolio that makes evident a student's knowledge and skills of multimedia and Web development applications. The portfolio is a collection of material that can be used as an interactive resume, an archive of work over time or a demonstration of proficiency. The contents of a student's digital portfolio can include work samples, letters of recommendation, references, transcripts, GPA, accomplishments/awards, competency lists, certifications, curricular standards, instructor assessments/evaluation and work experiences/employer evaluations. Thus, a student's digital portfolio provides the ability to show work on demand and evidence of their preparation for a multimedia and Web development career. The objective of this course is for students to demonstrate the theoretical as well as the technical skills they have acquired throughout the program. Students will assess personal strengths to establish a career goal and decide how to organize their media design and production work in a graduation portfolio. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to: Identify the need for a digital portfolio. Identify the target audience of a digital portfolio. Demonstrate the ability to organize, collect and prepare material for a digital portfolio. Define copyright laws for multimedia and Web development.
