Portfolio Format: Guidelines for Creating Prezumes & Portfolios – Organized by Kevin Albert & Michelle White

This Spring 2011, Dr. Jorge Perez visited KSU 4401: Senior Seminar to discuss Graduating in a Digital World.
As part of his presentation he introduced us to Prezi: The Zooming Presentation Editor.
Since we create Best of Show Portfolios in our class, there was an immediate interest among the college seniors to use Prezi as a portfolio format to showcase their learning story.

Kevin Albert and Michelle White, students in the KSU 4401: Senior Seminar shared that they used Prezi for course presentations. They immediately offered to help organize the resources and show the students how to use Prezi. As a result of this, several college seniors created their Best of Show Portfolios using the Prezi format.
