Student ePortfolio

TCC Student ePortfolio

Collect ~ Reflect ~ Showcase

 
An ePortfolio is a personal portfolio tool for storing, organizing, reflecting on and sharing items that represent your learning and achievement. You can include items such as documents, graphics, audio files, videos, presentations, course work, certifications, professional development, internships and your résumé to demonstrate your improvement or mastery in certain areas or attainment of skills.
You can control what items you want to include in your ePortfolio, how they are organized, and who you want to share them with. You can use your ePortfolio in many different ways – for University admissions acceptance, internship opportunities, employment, scholarships, reflection and expressing creativity – just to name a few.
In building your ePortfolio, there are 4 different platforms to choose from below.  It is up to you which one you use. Keep in mind, most platforms refer to an ePortfolio as a website or “site”.  So, in a sense, you are building your own website.  You will see links on How to Get Started and for the platform Help Centers below.
Please review terms and conditions of the platform you use.

Veterans - We Are Here To Help

As a Military Member or Veteran, you may not have learned to combat debt in order to have financial wellness.
Most have no personal financial training or education prior to entering the military. The genesis of this problem occurs because most military personnel received no financial teaching by their parents (and many of their parents are in bad financial shape as well).  Very few high schools teach personal financial management–currently less than five states have mandatory comprehensive personal finance classes. Basic military training has 1.5 hours of personal financial training, and according to a Military Times survey, 75% of respondents indicated either they didn't remember it or felt that it was so boring that they couldn't stay awake.

Raising Smart Kids

Little eyes are watching you. If you’re slapping down the plastic credit every time you go out to dinner or to the grocery store, they will eventually notice. Also, if at the end of every month, you and your spouse are arguing about money, they’ll notice. Set healthy examples for your kids, and they’ll be much more likely to follow it when they get older.
