Portfoliogen: Create A Teacher Profile For Prospective Employers

Ads by Google

Education is important, but finding a job is important, too. For educators in training, it can be a little tough in between all the tests, student teaching, and papers to create a solid online presence. However, Portfoliogen is a website with a goal to help those with that intent.

All in all, the website doesn’t seem to have more than what other similar sites offer. Its basic package offers every feature that the premium subscription does but with less customization and certain limits. For instance, the app allows for teachers to upload documents to the site that prospective employers can download. A basic user can upload only 2, but a premium user can upload 20.

The core essence of the site is for creating an online portfolio that showcases you and your work, but in all honesty, it looks like an attempt to recreate early 2000’s MySpace. There’s no option for domain mapping or custom header images, and each portfolio page features distracting ads. To be blunt, Portfoliogen would probably hurt your career more than it could help you.

Even still, for a basic online profile, it does work. Simple bios can be added to the site as well as photos and videos. The basic version offers three rough-looking color designs for users to choose from, but upgrading will allow for custom colors and background images.

It’s obvious that Portfoliogen wants its users to use the Premium version (which costs $14.95 a year). In the end, you’d probably be better off using LinkedIn, Blogger, or creating your own website. Portfoliogen doesn’t have much to bring to the table.

Features:

  • Online location for teacher portfolios.
  • Customizable layout and design.
  • Sections for self-written bios and accreditation.
  • Upload documents for download.
  • Upload photos and embed videos.
  • Add pages.

Take a look @ Portfoliogen.

    Portfoliogen is a terrible Online Portfolio tool. It’s not at all visually appealing, and would likely hurt your chances at gaining employment.
