Collect and Curate Your Skills and Experiences Into a Personal Portfolio: Pathbrite | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

ePortfolios for teachers or learners?


Robin Good: Pathbrite is a new web service which allows you to collect, bring together and layout any kind of media content (from video clips, to images  and text) to create a visually compelling personal portfolio of skills and experiences.


In fact, Pathbrite can be used for any number of purposes that involve creating a good looking web presence in which one can easily bring together different types of content to create a "collection".


A music band video portfolio, a photographer book and list of achievements, a sport master illustrated hall of fame. 


From the official site: "Curate all your stuff to create beautiful portfolios.

Arrange and describe all your digital artifacts in a way that tells your whole story—tailored for any audience."


"Pathbrite ePortfolios are the best way to collect, track and showcase a lifetime of learning and achievements, and to get recommended pathways for continuous success."


Key traits: 


-> Aggregate everything about you in one place.


-> Import anything digital from any source, including a resume, documents, audio, video, recommendations. 

-> Publish and share your story on Pathbrite or with your selected social networks. 


-> Configure and personalize the layout of your portfolio.

Curate Your Newsletter by Dragging and Dropping Your Selected Articles: FlashIssue

This might be a useful tool for learners to assemble their own portfolio of online work, or for presenting the results of a collaborative project.

Robin Good: FlashIssue is a web app which allows you to easily assemble a professional-looking newsletter, by bringing together your best content as well as any article available online.

FlashIssue can read your site RSS feed or for that matter any RSS feed you provide it with and you can pick and select from the stream of items in the feed the ones you want to include in your newsletter.

Not only.

You can search for any topic via an integrated Google Search or provide the URL of a specific web page you want to integrate.

Once done, you can personalize the newsletter with your banner, text introduction and footer and then send it to all of your contacts in Gmail, or to your subscribers lists inside MailChimp, ConstantContact and other mail delivery services.

N.B.: A Google Chrome plugin also allows you to easily clip and grab any content directly from any web page and easily integrate it inside your curated newsletter.

See how it works: http://www.flashissue.com/gmail-newsletters/ ;
