Help on How to Create an eLearning Portfolio
Nov 23, 2011
I was hoping I might be able to get some help from the many users of Articulate. I'm looking to get into freelance work and put myself out there a little more. I read Tom Kuhlmann's post on how to get an eLearning job so I'm out here on the forum more, I'm setting up a website/blog, volunteering for some development work, and I'm getting together work examples. However, I still need a little guidance.
I know I need to put together some type of portfolio, but what should it look like and what should it include?
I'm looking at using Engage to build a media tour to go through examples of graphic design, audio and video production, as well as eLearning. Does anyone have any good examples of their own portfolios to share?
I'm a little worried about conflict of interest with my development day job, so I want to make sure I keep work and freelance projects separate. I'm thinking that I shouldn't use my work computer and software to do any outside work but I don't have the money yet to throw down on software at home. Any advice on how to handle this?
To get started, I'm thinking I need to offer my services at a very low rate just to get a few jobs, build up my portfolio, and prove myself a little. I hear around $30 an hour is normal for freelance work. Is offering $20 an hour a reasonable balance between sending the message that I'm eager to get out there and that I'm still worth a certain amount.
Thanks in advance for your help and advice,
