 Reflections on the Process



This is the 33rd tool that I have used to re-create my electronic portfolio. The process moved fairly smoothly, although I was in Hungary, working on a school computer, and had some problems with copying and pasting from another version. I was able to convert all URLs to weblinks. The tool allowed me to reconstruct my portfolio in less than an hour, copying the information from my GooglePages portfolio where I had the URLs on the page (and the links). I easily uploaded my graphics. All of my other artifacts are web links. The program's Files Manager shows all of the files that I have uploaded. There is a limit of 10 MB per free account for all files.
Since I prefer to have the links open a new window (and the portfolio remains open), each link opened in a new window.  When an artifact is opened, the reader can close the window and easily return to the portfolio, rather than using the Back button.
There is also no data management tool, to aggregate assessment data. I'm not sure there is an interactivity feature to this program, such as found in a blog or wiki. Therefore, this tool would work for a presentation portfolio but not for summative assessment.
The real advantage of PBWiki is the many different tools, gadgets and widgets available, as well as the file management system. ?I was able to upload files as attachments. I created a Table of Contents on the upper right side of the page (the SideBar), with links to each section on the site, which automatically shows on each page. I was able to create each page as I created the first link. I am impressed with this tool. I was able to create this hyperlinked set of web pages, with no knowledge of HTML.
?I had one small problem with editing the graphic at the bottom of the Portfolio-at-a-Glance page. So, I closed the browser window, and opened it again. 
This program would work well for a presentation portfolio, but PBWiki would work better if the goal is a learning portfolio, with interactivity and feedback.
