Textbooks, papers and… Seelio?

No matter what you’re studying or which classes you’re taking, you have a place to showcase everything you’re learning on Seelio. We released our first-ever animation video to show you how Seelio can help you stand out.

But there’s more! Get to know Seelio a little better by exploring examples from other students and resources we have to help you get started.

We have students from across the country using Seelio to tell their story. Find inspiration at any time in the Seelio Gallery. And, follow @Seelio on Twitter. On Fridays we share our #studentoftheweek. One of these days, it might just be you!

 


Get a little help when you need it

Think your work just doesn’t fit in a portfolio? Think again! While Seelio is a great place to post your best class assignments, you can add just about anything.

Tell your story

The best thing about Seelio is that it’s yours to keep. You can control what you add and who can see it. Take things for a spin!

 


Educator Spotlight: Pauline Bary Khan from Michigan Engineering

We asked Pauline Bary Khan, Princeton Review Top 300 Professor and the Director of Michigan Engineering’s Program in Technical Communication, to share about her experience with Seelio in her classes.

Earlier this year she used Seelio with students in her senior-level Technical Communication course and her first-year Engineering 100 course. Below she shares how students responded and why she believes it’s important for students to begin capturing their educational experience in a portfolio from day one.

Educator Testimonial: Shawn Salata from the University of Michigan

BRINGING SENIOR ENGINEERING PROJECTS ONLINE: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING TESTIMONIAL 

Earlier this spring we worked with the Multidisciplinary Design Program (MDP) at the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering to bring senior engineering projects from their annual Design Expo online.

The Design Expo is a day-long showcase of senior engineering projects that gives the community a chance to see what Michigan Engineers have been working on. MDP was looking for an easy way to showcase student projects online and highlight the company sponsors that make the Expo a success.

We asked Shawn Salata, MDP Student Program Specialist and all-around Design Expo guru, to share her feedback on using Seelio for the Spring 2013 Expo.

WHAT PROBLEM WERE YOU FACING THAT SEELIO SOLVED?

We were looking for the best way to capture and showcase the senior engineering projects on display at the College Design Expo. In recent years, we have captured a quick 60-90 second video from each project (and there are 70-120 projects at each Expo), then uploaded them individually to our Facebook page. This was time-consuming and ineffective. With so many videos, the audience had to scroll through many postings to get to a project they might be looking for; or they may only look at the most recently posted videos, never even seeing 90% of the projects.
