I will use this page to demonstrate how we will be using our portfolio pages in Etap 623. You probably think of a portfolio as a demonstration of your work. This portfolio will also be a demonstration of your work, with the focus being on the work you put into developing your mini course. Everything you do related to the instructional design process except the actual content of the course will go here.

Since we are doing a different component each week, it makes sense to put some headings in right away. If you need to add or change headings to suit your needs, you can do so as we go. Feel free to use a similar layout as a fellow student.
