How To Make a Personal e-folio?

Students are busy doing their homework, taking courses, hoping to pass their exams, applying their college now, and nearly every student’s applications are kinda same to the professor. In order to be specific and unique, I think it is a good way to make a personal website, to show them my data, my advantages and my abilities.

And also, sometimes you might want to show your new photos and mood to your family and friends, it is not convenient to draw a poster or write an e-mail to show them, so the best way is to make a personal e-folio.

Because of I want to make a personal e-folio, so I have to considering these questions below.

A.Problem Statement
To design my own website, there’s going to be many problems that I have to solve. Question a: How to make a personal website?
Question b: What tools can I use for design my e-folio?
Question c: What capacity will my website has? (webspace)
Question d: What advantages can I take from other’s e-folio?
Question e: What disadvantages are there in other’s e-folio?
Question f: Who will be the customer that my website served?
Question g: Where can I host my website?
Question h: how can I copy my site to the remote server?
Question i: How much space will I need?
Question j: How much bandwidth?
Question k: What type of services?
Question l: Do you want to use a free host or are you willing to pay? Question m: Do you want advertisements or not?

B.Design Brief
I’m going to create an efolio.
I would like to use these software to help me create my personal website: HTML editor, WYSIWYG editors, Graphics Creation Software, Photoshop, AVS Video Editor 6.2, Wax, and so on. My major constraints: I don’t need a huge space to hold my site, I don’t need too much videos and photos, and also I’m just a student and I don’t have so much money to host or advertise my website. a.What is to be accomplished by the design

Because of I want to make a website that include all my information and student data, so I intend to make a website that can make my customer know about me. b.Who is the customer to be served
The university that I applied.

C. Design Specification
a. Evaluating what makes a good website
1. Content (Navigation) The content should be very clear and convenient. It should on the first page, when my customer open my website, they will see the content first. And I should add links on each buttons, and the reader can click a button such as “Student data”, so they can go to the link and see my data very quickly. And also, the content should divide into different categories because it is easy for the reader to find what types of information do they want.

2. Colors: In my personal website, I won’t use bright colors like yellow or hot pink. Because they are very faint and readers can’t see them clearly, they will damage the reader’s eyes, too. I would rather to use a distinct title, and use different colors in different categories. And also, remember do not always use those dark colors either.

3.Font&Size: The font of the word can be random, but if the website is for apply the college, the font should be strict, just use Times New Roman is okay. But if the website is for entertainment, such as showing your pictures and moods to your friends, the font can be very funny or cute, like Chalkduster. The size can neither very big nor very small.

4. Use of multimedia: In my personal website, I might put some music player in it. Or otherwise I can put a video in it to introduce myself more and make my website more interesting and more attractive.

5.What grabs a person’s attention: Funny things always grabs people’s attention. So I would like to put some funny pictures, images, or articles on it. b.Evaluating already existing ePortfolios and discussing why you like or dislike the site. 1.

Actually I don’t like this website....
