An opportunity to effectively represent yourself and your education.
A place to collect and save coursework.
A chance to showcase accomplishments and school work to family and friends.
A tool for creating digital resumes to send to employers.
A web portal for accessing your work, track your academic growth and plan your career.
An electronic resource you can use to apply for transfer and financial aid.
A chance to reflect on your education.
A record of your skills, achievements and learning.
