Academic Portfolio

As we progress through our program, we are required to complete various class projects in the hopes of generating an e-portfolio.  The one drawback is that we are encouraged to create tutorials on personal hobbies using open source tools.  Unfortunately, in many instances neither the product or the tool has relevance to the real-life role of an instructional designer making the completed projects inappropriate portfolios for adults with established careers.

My hope is that moving forward, higher education institutions provide students with industry relevant tasks and tools that afford them the chance to not only gain relevant experience but also demonstrate the skills that are desired by many of the employers.  An example would be using Articulate Storyline and Microsoft Powerpoint to create story boards and online tutorials.
