Interactive Sagittal Section 2.0 created by Daniel Currie Hall Use the controls below to set the position of the lips, tongue, velum, and vocal folds.

For example, if the lips are closed, positioning the tongue for a fricative will have no effect on the transcription.

The infographic below lists the 20 most popular LMSs.

Electronic portfolio An electronic portfolio (also known as an eportfolio, e-portfolio, digital portfolio, or online portfolio[1]) is a collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually on the Web. Such electronic evidence may include inputted text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks. E-portfolios are both demonstrations of the user's abilities and platforms for self-expression, and, if they are online, they can be maintained dynamically over time. Some e-portfolio applications permit varying degrees of audience access, so the same portfolio might be used for multiple purposes. According to Anderson, e-portfolios can then go viral and be passed on to be easily viewed by many on the web. E-portfolios also help to foster an independent and autonomous way of thinking, according to Strivens.
