[NOTE: The following is intended as a simulation of what an electronic portfolio might look like. It only represents one possible approach to the design of an electronic portfolio and assumes that the creator has a personal web page or blog or can utilize some other medium that uses hyperlinks to materials stored on the World Wide Web or a personal server. Individual creativity, design ideas, and approaches to portraying material accumulated both before and during a graduate degree will lead to a wide variety of display possibilities whether electronic or some other form. Several of the linked items below are simulated place-holders used merely to demonstrate what might be possible.]
