Tools

Because so many different electronic portfolio building tools are available that serve users in a variety of contexts, MPortfolio does not recommend one specific tool. MPortfolio staff can provide consultation on a case-by-case basis regarding which tool might best meet your needs as a facilitator or creator. The following tools are currently in use in multiple units across campus:

Google Sites
A basic website creation tool offered as part of the M+Google Apps for Education suite.

Seelio
An social networking and electronic portfolio building tool.

Weebly
A website building and hosting service featuring a drag-and-drop interface. 

Wix 
A cloud-based web development platform that allows users to create websites and mobile sites with online drag and drop tools. 

WordPress
A blogging tool and website building and hosting service that provides free hosting.

Other tools in use on campus include Foliotek, Chalk and Wire, and Tumblr. Contact mporthelp@umich.edu to discuss tools and implementation strategies or visit Scholarspace to learn how to use a specific tool.
