Assignment – Develop an electronic Web portfolio, using a plain text editor (Notepad++)
1. Task Description
Develop an electronic work portfolio for yourself, which demonstrates your skills in as many relevant areas (of your degree) as possible. The portfolio should contain:
– Homepage that introduces you to possible employers.
– Resume – listing personal details, education, experience (work), qualifications, hobbies, other relevant information (these could be shown on separate pages if desired)
– Examples of your work/skills in four (4) different areas. Some examples:
o Design examples
o Graphics production and preparation
o Written and spoken communication skills
o The ability to work as part of a team and independently
o Project management
o Skills required by employers in your field of study.
Each skill area should include examples of your work which may be in the form of text, graphics, links to working projects or screen shots of projects.
– Functioning web site (digital). Uploaded to your website on infotech (our Linux server).
o IBS students check with your local tutor about this requirement (as it may not be required).
– The University marker must have access to the source code, so you will also be required to provide a zip file containing the entire website (and design documentation as a single word document). For all Internal/External/Sydney/Melbourne and GXUST students this will be via MySCU (see the Submit Assignments folder) site.
There should be at least six (6) pages in the website. There should be – at minimum – a Home page (index.html), a Resume page, and at least 4 pages with examples of your skills. One of these skills pages must detail your Web Development skills page.
In addition to the six (6) pages already mentioned, topics 9, 10, 11 and 12 contain continuous assessments that will add an additional two pages to your site. These additional pages should be linked to the Web Development skills page only – as they are related to these skills. For your convenience I have included all of the continuous assessments as an appendix of this document.
Remember that prospective employers have to read your portfolio, so keep it informative and intuitive. Typically students lose marks as a result of a content poor site (including lack of information, bad spelling and grammar) – don't make this mistake!
