These can then be linked back and reviewed against the components identified when considering the realisation requirements of the portfolios:
- Embedding audio content from SoundCloud allows the audio to be hosted with text detailed that can also be embedded. Using Soundcloud also allows comments to be left at specific points on the audio timeline.
- Blogging can be used form many different aspects of the portfolio, including: Personal Development Plan (PDP), planning, reporting, analysis and evaluation
- Mahara fully support Web 2.0 services which allow content hosted on other web-sites to be fully integrated into the portfolios. This not only allows audio content (via SoundCloud) to be embedded, but also other media, such as videos, scores, photos, scripts, showreels, animations, sound installations, etc.
- RRS feed from online forums
- Social media
As I mentioned in my last post, I have built a prototype academic sound design portfolio using Mahara
