We think it’s important to share lessons learned about using portfolios in the classroom so we asked one of our educational partners to share her story.
Please join us for our AAEEBL webinar about Integrative Portfolios for Social Change on December 11, 2013 at 1PM EST with Dr. Katie Richards-Schuster from the University of Michigan’s School of Social Work.

Part of what makes Seelio great is the ability to add attachments to your work. There’s more to your story than bullet points and we’ve recently made it even easier to show what you’ve done with updates to the attachments that we support.
Tips & Tricks for Attachments
- Stuck on finding an image for an attachment? Browse the examples along the right side of the add work process. Consider adding a picture of you or your team, a logo, or even a summary slide for a longer paper.
- If you don’t like the way your attachment looks, try applying a filter to it! You can access filters by clicking the pencil icon in the top right corner of the attachment and click “Edit Photo”.
- The “hide” function found under the edit pencil lets you make an individual attachment visible only to you. These attachments can be helpful when you come back to the work later (such as before an interview!) and want to refresh your memory on certain aspects of the project but don’t want those drafts to be visible to others.
Have you ever struggled with presenting your group projects or teamwork during an interview? The collaborators feature on Seelio allows multiple users who have collaborated on a project to produce a single work that reflects both the collective team vision and the individual contributions of each member.
How the collaborators feature can be useful:
Collaborators lend credibility to your work. Demonstrating how you’ve worked well in a team along with your own individual contribution to a team project is valuable information for recruiters and other audiences. See a great example of a group work by Joshua, Aubrey, Jessica, and Brad.
Collaborative works are a great way to document team projects that are currently in progress. Having a collection of presentations, photos, and documents in one place keeps the project organized. It’s also useful for keeping project mentors and advisors in the loop on your team’s progress and prompting them for feedback.
Adding collaborators is a good way to connect with people you’ve worked with on a more professional level.
Here’s how it works:
Emily, Ginny, and Moses worked on a project together called “AppleCee” Now that the project is complete, Emily wants to add it to her portfolio so that she can show her teamwork to recruiters during job fairs and interviews.
- Emily creates the work AppleCee and adds a short description and a few attachments like the group’s PowerPoint presentation and title slide.
