PortfolioGen started as a project between two dedicated teachers from New Jersey. We were looking for way to create an online presence that would allow us to share our skills and achievements with our peers and administrators. Sure, there were options available to build webpages and share documents but nothing that gave the features, customization and simplicity that we were looking for.
At first, this was a very basic site that we both used for our academic advancement but soon grew into a labor of love and pride as we noticed more and more people inquiring about the site, sending positive feedback and offering up suggestions. We quickly embraced the idea of building a great product that our users find a valuable resource.
With 59,000 teachers, students, educators and professionals from all over the world using PortfolioGen, we are more dedicated than ever in providing a great resource. We personally handle every comment and inquiry and are constantly working on new features and listening to our users.
These are actual testimonials sent to us by some of our users. We take great pride in all the positive feedback we receive!
I believe my Portfoliogen e-portfolio helped me secure a teaching position. Portfoliogen is easy to use, easy to customize, and extremely professional looking. I am so pleased with the service and product provided by Portfoliogen, I recommended it to my other friends and highly recommend it to anyone seeking to create a quality e-portfolio.
This website is absolutely wonderful! It is incredibly easy to use and is great for future employers to learn more about me.
Portfoliogen is a great way to create an online portfolio! I found it very user-friendly. I was able to create exactly what I needed through their site and they gave me many options when creating the design and layout. I recommend this site to anyone looking to create an online portfolio.
I found PortfolioGen while I was looking for a way to make my own webpage. I saw the multiple ways the site could be used as a classroom tool but I also realized that I could display my whole portfolio for prospective employers to peruse at their leisure. I put my philosophy, my resume, pictures, highlights of my career, and letters of recommendation on the site. It was incredibly easy and it looked great!
I absolutely would recommend using Portfoligen for a teaching portfolio. I have tried other websites before but none offer the simplicity and ease of use as well as options and tools designed specifically for teachers. I absolutely love that I can embed multiple videos for teaching and place endorsements right on my website. My electronic portfolio looks professional and is easy to navigate!
A lot of the principals were extremely impressed with my use of technology in creating my portfolio online. I loved that I was able to also see where my portfolio was being viewed and how many times a day it was viewed. I would HIGHLY recommend PortfolioGen to any seeking a job, especially those that value the use of technology.
The PortfolioGen layout is user friendly, guiding you step by step through each aspect of portfolio building. The staff at PortfolioGen is readily available, answering questions in a timely manner, and always willing to help. Adding a personal electronic portfolio website to resumes, cover letters, and business cards allows school administrators to view my credentials, lesson videos and photos with ease. I am extremely pleased with PortfolioGen and would encourage teaching professionals to create an online portfolio.
PortfolioGen allowed me to put together the perfect visual portfolio. After 10 years of teaching, I needed an uncomplicated precise way to display all my talents. Using this technology put me ahead of the game and later found out that it was the QR code that made me memorable during the interview. I got the job!
With PortfolioGen, principals were able to see the teacher I am in true form. I was able to upload reference letters, images of my classroom, and, most importantly, videos of my instruction. Principals didn't have to speculate about my ability to teach because they could see it.
This is the best way to impress a prospective employer with your assets and skills in the workplace. It's also a way to demonstrate your use of technology!
PortfolioGen is really making things easy for me as I compile my education portfolio to become a teacher in the state of Maine. The user interface is very comprehensible, even for someone with little knowledge of how to create a web presence. The templates are plentiful and the whole process has been very easy to navigate. The hardest part about writing a portfolio shouldn't be the formatting, and thanks to PortfolioGen, this last leg of my journey toward my dream career has been very smooth. I especially love that my work is password protected!
This site is very easy to use and provides a great way to create an e-portfolio.
PortfolioGen has allowed me to create a professional approach to and structure in respect of a previous jumbled Portfolio of Evidence. It allows colleagues and other interested parties easy access to my documentation without having to "kill a few more trees" by printing these out. Obviously, because it is online, it allows me to update and add whenever I need to. I know that one can also do it with a Word doc. However, as PortfolioGen has created such a user-friendly format, I can access my Portfolio in one place with all the various documents professionally "stored". It created structure for a person that needed it desperately.
This website is amazing! Having an online portfolio to show in interviews is very beneficial. This has been the easiest way to portray my achievements to my future employers. Thank you PortfolioGen!
PortfolioGen is a great way for teachers to market themselves while searching for employment. Online portfolios follow the technology era and show employers that you're not afraid to change it up to stand out. PortfolioGen is easy to use.
This site is very easy to use. I am so happy that I upgraded to the premium version because it allows for greater customization. I really appreciate the ability to password protect the entire website since it contains a great deal of personal information. In my opinion PortfolioGen would do well to market this site to the general public and not specifically to teachers. I think this site would be useful to anyone seeking to put together a comprehensive employment portfolio of their education, qualifications, and experience.
I've loved using PortfolioGen for my online portfolio - more than any other hosting site I know of. It's easy to use and I've had great feedback regarding the layouts.
PortfolioGen is a fantastic resource, it has allowed me to develop my portfolio in a matter of days and the opportunity to showcase my teaching experiences to potential employers.
I decided to give your product a try, to use as an electronic portfolio for my teacher evaluation this year. I am so glad I did! Your product is so easy to use and edit. I tried your free version and immediately wanted to upgrade. I feel that the price was right! I've tried other "free" sites, and have been frustrated. I probably could have gotten by with your free portfolio, but I think I may have future use for it, so I upgraded. Thanks!
I was not sure how easy it would be to turn my binder teaching portfolio into an online portfolio until I joined PortfolioGen. PortfolioGen is such an easy site to navigate and very appealing to portfolio readers. I am very impressed and as I finish my portfolio I am sure that others who read it will be impressed too.
This website is so easy to use. I love it!
As a future art educator, I was excited to start creating my online teaching portfolio. It has been easy to put together and I love being able to share my education and experience in a creative way. Over the years my work has taken me to so many different organizations and I feel that my portfolio will help bring all my experiences together in a relevant and meaningful way.
I researched many portfolio sites in preparation for my TEFL teaching. This by far has been the easiest to the use and understand. The directions are clear and concise and have exactly what a teacher needs!
Portfoliogen is a wonderful website to create a portfolio on. I enjoyed being able to add pictures to help give future employers a glimpse into my classroom. The statistics feature is helpful when you are wondering how many people have viewed your portfolio. It is a great way to be able to give future employers easy access to your portfolio. It was very easy to create and I am happy with the final product!
