Apps to Use as Student ePortfolios. I have yet to find the perfect Digital Portfolio app that I think I would use exclusively in a Visual Arts class.
Some apps can be used as graphic portfolios or as beautiful sketchbooks, others are great at sharing. Not all of the apps available are great at all of these things. I have spent a heap of time trying to find one and would be more than happy for someone to send me the name of one they are using successfully. Having said that the following are apps that I would consider using; Evernote: FREE Evernote is an easy-to-use, free app that helps you remember everything across all of the devices you use. Paper: FREE Paper is an easy and beautiful way to create on iPad. Three Ring: FREE Three Ring is a fast, flexible, and simple way to organize and present your students' real world work, from handwritten assignments to classroom presentations. Coolibah: FREE Coolibah is a digital scrapbooking app that could just as easily be used to present student's work as a digital portfolio.

Present.me is SlideShare Meets YouTube. Have you ever wondered what would happen if SlideShare and YouTube got hitched and had a child together?
If you answered ‘yes’ to that, I’m a little concerned. But if that question has stirred your curiosity, let me introduce you to Present.me. Present.me lets individuals, groups, organisations…anyone…combine online presentations with video, and make them viewable ‘on demand’. “Imagine for a second you were with me in a room right now,” ponders co-founder Richard Garnett,” and I was your teacher, with some maths maybe. Or your lawyer with a contract, or your architect with some plans. Garnett’s pitch sets the tone rather nicely for what Present.me is all about. Creative Commons. Video Slideshow Maker with Music.
