The Google Sites and Digital Portfolio Video Tutorial Series
Good to Know
Many times people don't want to search endlessly on your site looking for new stuff....make it easy on your audience and include an announcements section where you can quickly and easily update what's new on your site, what's new with you, or anything else you may want to share that relevant to your digital portfolio. I've seen students post announcements concerning athletic or performance events they are involved in, notifications of new projects they've added to the digital portfolio, or even general progress comments regarding something they are eagerly working on. For example, one guy added something along the lines of "I finally turned in the first draft of the fictional short story I've been working on. I can't wait to get it back Friday."
