Portfolio URL list for 2013 Showcase
This space will be the home to assets in preparation of the creation of a portfolio for DGST minor students. It will be updated frequently leading up to the SAT MARCH 30 WORKSHOP starting at NOON (until 4 or 5pm but the IML is open until 6pm) and the materials will persist afterward for revision and completion.
As you gather and look over your assets, you may considering starting by listing all IML courses you've taken and then jotting down what assets you may have from them. Here are a few other things to keep in mind:
1. Look for themes and curate your work based on viewing your projects as a whole. This will help you see what is important to you (e.g. read any posts along with viewing projects), and it will also render the portfolio useful for a wide range of uses, from graduate school applications, to grant submissions, to employment applications. You can direct someone to the exact url, while also retaining the main (index) url on your email signature line or in your resume.
2. Video literacy: rather than slogging down a web site with the heavy files of video, you should consider letting video hosting sites do what they do best. Upload to one or more of the following hosting sites, and embed video in a web page: Internet Archive (highty recommended they are Library of Congress supported, free speech activists, you should have an account which has no limits on uploads), YouTube (undoubtedly the most populated but bad fair use policies, if you place work here, make sure you also place it on another site), Vimeo (a good YouTube alternative with nice embedding features, and even though there is a pro version, the free one is adequate for most purposes).
3. Be sure to contextualize you work and be sure to add any citations that may have been removed from your media to be sure you are exercising your fair use rights.
4. Don't forget presentations: think about any kick-ass slideshows you've done and upload them to Slideshare and embed them in a page. Ditto any Prezis or Vuvox projects you've created. You may want to contextualize these in the page in which you embed them, but you can do so easily.
