Moving modern students beyond the resume and transcript. With over 20 years of experience, CN founder and his research team developed the CN ePortfolio to engage modern students in academia and help prepare them for their future careers. CN offers lifelong, free options for individuals and paid licenses for institutions.
How can students create their CN ePortfolio account and use it?
K-12 and college students from anywhere in the world may visit theCN.com to create their free ePortfolio account, or their certified CN ePortfolio account can be created dynamically by their CN licensed institution. Students own their ePortfolio for the rest of their life, and they take it with them when they switch schools and beyond. Once students graduate from a CN licensed school, their accounts become free to use after that with the option to upgrade to a premium account.
When students are ready to hit the job market, look for internships, or enter another school (college or graduate school), they may send the web address (URL) of their ePortfolio for application. View graduate student example or view high school student example. Their ePortfolio page may include a resume, recommendation, learning, and experimental evidence, showcases of their competencies, endorsements from classmates and teachers, even their certified transcript. Students may choose to create different versions of their ePortfolios for a variety of purposes, such as college admission, internship, employment, and social presence, and networking. As the owner of their ePortfolio, students have total control over their intellectual property and privacy. To fully support the life-long ePortfolio concept, CN also allows users to archive old artifacts on their ePortfolio. ePortfolio printing options are also available.
ePortfolios created through institutional integration (LTI, API) are all certified offering a variety of CN certifications for the authenticity of learning evidences such as badges, recommendation, transcript, school affiliation, etc.Why do students need a CN ePortfolio when they could use LinkedIn®?
