Putting It All Together: Website, Blog, Portfolio

Students will end the term with attention to their own personal websites. Students will refer to earlier work and previously supplied references, and will attend to course requirements for content. (See below.)

(Students, consider the advice and guidelines from the Forbes article, "Why Every Job Seeker Should Have a Personal Website, And What It Should Include." Before you begin to finalize the website, make a "finishing touches checklist" for your website from this material. Then, implement the changes and improvements while including the course-required content. Need inspiration? Look at this list of "The 3 Best Personal Websites We've Ever Seen" from MUSE.)

Students' sites will contain:
  1. Links to blog entries (in Blogger and Weebly.)
  2. Resume / About Me / C.V.
  3. Portfolio(s) which will include each of the following, with contextualizing commentary:
    1. Samples of Video Production
    2. Samples of Digital Design
    3. Samples of Presentation Design
    4. Samples of other work, such as writing, art, 
    5. Appropriate connections to other social media and online resources
