#58 MyShowcase [1/8]: An introduction

This post is the first in a series of 8 posts about MyShowcase.

MyShowcase is an online portfolio system that allows you to collect, share and organize your best online evidence to showcase your achievements and capability. With an organisational account it’s also possible to incorporate frameworks into the portfolio system so you can map your achievements against a specified framework. In MMU, we have a paid for license that students can use to map their portfolio to the university Early Career Professional development framework. You can also learn more about creating your own frameworks for your organisation or professional bodies.

The basic software is free so there’s nothing stopping you recommending MyShowcase to your friends or family who might want to use it too!

Creating an account is easy.

For a basic account, you can sign up here: https://www.myshowcase.me/

If you are an MMU member of staff, sign up via the organisational portal here: https://app.myshowcase.me/#!/mmu

  1. Hi,just wondering if MMU has an institutional licence for my showcase and if all staff and students can use it? What happens with the portfolios when students/staff leave the university? Thank you in advance for your help.

    1. Hi Chrissi,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Students and staff can take their MyShowcase portfolio with them after they leave the university. This is one of the main reasons why MyShowcase was chosen as an e-portfolio solution of the Business School.

      I’ll email you separately about the licencing agreement at MMU.

      Hope you’re enjoying the blog!

      Cath
