Try Pathbrite for Creating Academic Portfolios

Pathbrite is a free service for creating digital academic portfolios. Pathbrite provides an easy-to-follow template for creating your portfolio. There are ten parts to the template, but you can skip parts that you don't think you need. Your Pathbrite portfolio can include transcripts, letters, and samples of your work. You can import information from a number of social networks as well as upload materials that are stored on your computer.

Applications for Education
About a month ago someone asked me if I had a standard digital portfolio template to use with students. At that time I didn't, but now with Pathbrite I do have one. Pathbrite could be a good tool for high school students to use to organize materials and create a portfolio that they can share with college admissions counsellors.
