PortfolioGen Classroom - A Digital Portfolio Tool for Students and Teachers

PortfolioGen is a free service that I reviewed last year as an option for teachers to use to create professional portfolios. Recently, PortfolioGen launched a classroom account service for teachers and students. With a PortfolioGen Classroom account teachers can view their students' portfolios and send them feedback from one screen.

PortfolioGen portfolios are basically websites that you and your students can customize to your liking. The sites support uploading documents and other media. If you're using your PortfolioGen portfolio primarily for text and static visual content, you may be interested in the built-in option to download your portfolio as a PDF.

Applications for Education
PortfolioGen Classroom could be a good service to have your students use to showcase examples of their best work throughout the semester or year. Through your PortfolioGen teacher account you will be able to see their portfolios in one place. The limitation to PortfolioGen Classroom is that you can only have twenty students in one account at a time.
