  • There are many free technologies for creating in ePortfolio. One of the main options is Google Sites – free, integrates with all other Google tools, and is also ad free. Wordpress, which currently hosts 20% of the world’s websites, is free for the basic version, which puts ads right into your site. You can upgrade to ad-free for $30 a year.
    Any technology and hosting solution you’d like to use for your ePortfolio will work as long as it has the needed functionality. If you need help figuring out how to set one of the sites up, go to YouTube and search for videos that solve the problem you have.
  • This concludes our brief presentation on ePortfolios. Now go make one!
