Multimedia Writing Portfolios - Fall 2015


Students in JRMC 2202 Multimedia Writing at The American University in Cairo were required to produce digital portfolios of the work they completed in the course.

Each portfolio should have at least the following components:
  • Home page
  • Twitter Scavenger Hunt (TSH)
  • Interview
  • Photo Essay
  • Infographic
  • Covering an Event
  • About/contact page
Students use Weebly to complete their portfolios. This decision was made in 2014 after determining the ease of use in building a website via the Weebly platform. The drag and drop component is super simple. The best part is that the end result has the potential to be organized and professional.

Students were given some time in class to work on the portfolios along with feedback.

This course is one of two media writing core courses for the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The goal of the portfolio:
  • It should be error free because it is a showcase of their work to share for prospective internship or job opportunities.
Students should also be proud to display their body of work from the course in a public platform and in a professional manner.

This semester I taught two sections of this course. Here are the students' digital portfolios:
