WITC Students to Create Digital Portfolios
(3/10/15): NEW RICHMOND – Students in the WITC Business Management Degree program will create digital portfolios for use in class and future interviews, thanks to funding by a Perkin’s grant. The college has partnered with a software company, myeFolio, which has a strong track record with many Minnesota colleges.
Students may participate in myeFolio at no cost thanks to the Perkins’ grant, which is a federal program designed to enhance the academic, career, and technical skills of students in career and technical education programs.
The pilot project, which documents certain outcomes to be sure graduates have the technical skills employers need, was recently presented at the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) Assessment Conference. Attending the conference are, from left to right, Dr. Alex Birkholz, business instructor at WITC-New Richmond; Renelle Gill, business instructor at WITC-Rice Lake; and Lynne Groves of myeFolio/Avenet Web Solutions, Minneapolis.

Avenet's myeFolioTM Student myeFolio is a multimedia web site designed to store and attractively display resumes, academic and career data and documentation, educational and career goals, achievements and other meaningful information. Unlike a one-dimensional paper document, an eFolio can "come alive" and provide a "rich" display, including documents, images, audio, video, links, and detailed examples of accomplishments and achievements.
