Portfolio at Nazareth was launched in fall 2013. Students are required to create a professional electronic portfolio as part of their academic program. All undergraduate students create a Core Portfolio and some academic programs require students to create program portfolios. Currently, students use two different platforms for e-portfolios: Chalk and Wire and Google Sites. 

  • Beginning fall 2015, first-year and new transfer students begin using Google Sites for their Core Portfolio. Training is embedded in existing coursework.
  • Students who are sophomores or juniors in 2015-2016 have the choice to continue using Chalk and Wire or switch their Core Portfolio to Google Sites. Alicia Collins will be available to walk you through the process of switching which only takes a few minutes. Feel free to contact Alicia to set up an individual appointment: acolli63@naz.edu or 585-389-2633.

For some portfolio assignments, you may need to scan in documents or use a camcorder or digital camera. Scanners and media equipment are available in the lower level of the library. For additional information: Technology and Media Service Desk.
