That Blue Square Thing


The CIDA and DIDA courses are now finished and will not run anymore.
I’ll keep these pages up for a while as there are some useful resources for me on them. Any future resources will be on the Creative iMedia pages.

Your e-portfolio is where you present your work for marking.

You're going to produce two websites. One is your set of products. The other is your e-portfolio. Make sure you keep them separate and don't get confused over what goes where.


I very strongly suggest an e-portfolio with 5 pages:

  1. Home page
  2. Evidence
  3. Designs
  4. Products
  5. Final Product

Start by creating a simple website with five pages, linked together with a navigation bar of some kind. Leave a gap for a funky banner at some point.

Then you need to start writing. I suggest starting with the products page...

The Pages

Start with your products page. This needs to tell the story of what you've done - and maybe include a little of how you did it. I'd suggest a section for each product you've made.

Then go to the designs page. You need to link to each of your designs and have a short introduction to each one. Here is a good opportunity to include any additional justification of design choices that you need to put in and to talk about why your final products are different to your designs.

The final product page can be very short. It really needs a screenshot of the intro page of your final product which can then be linked to the exported final product. Doing the link is slightly tricky so ask for help here.

The evidence page needs to link to your proposal, assets table, screenshots showing assets development and end of project review. Each link will need a very brief piece of writing to go with it just to say what the link is to.

The home page needs to have a brief introduction to the work and your personal details on it.

Multimedia Showcase:

Your e-portfolio needs to include enough writing, working links to files and products and needs to be a multimedia showcase. This means it has to have cool, multimedia stuff on it.

If you get most of these things in your e-portfolio somewhere you're well on the way to producing a multimedia showcase:

Don't worry if you don't have all of that - aim to get the first five at least.
