#Mosomelt 2019 Week 4: Building your eportfolio

This week we invite you to turn your WordPress Blog into an eportfolio: making it into a hub for your mobile social media platforms of choice.

To do this you customise your WordPress site in the ‘dashboard’ or “My Sites” section when logged into WordPress. For example use the WordPress Links section to add links then display them via the Wordpress Links Widget for linking your online activity https://wordpress.com/customize/:

Some articles re educational blogging and eportfolios that you may find interesting for further reading:

#Mosomelt 2016 Week 2 “The power of an online profile”

This weeks focus is exploring the start of building an online profile using short form mobile video – for example Vine or Instagram. Both of these video Apps are ‘mobile first’ – so best used by downloading the mobile App to your device.

Last week a few of you experimented with MSQRD for creating some short selfie videos. This week try using Vine or Instagram video to introduce yourself to the MOSOMELT community by creating and sharing either a six second Vine video or an Instagram video. Include the #mosomelt hashtag in the video title, post the link to your video in the Google Plus community, Tweet the link to the video with the #mosomelt hashtag in your Tweet, and comment on other participant videos.

What issues are there around “digital identity” and education?

Reflect on this process in your WordPress blog.
