Abstract

Open Source Software is effective alternative for facilitating an interactive experience within online/hybrid courses and a free alternative for students seeking to develop portfolios that evaluate and document academic progress and professional value. Using ISTE and Quality Matters Standards as guideposts, a site with interactive features was developed with WordPress, Pencil, Inkscape, Gimp, and F/OSS software. Websites like these are useful for careers in education, computer science, business, science, medicine, and nonprofit fields. Interactive tools displayed in the project are useful for maintaining student interest and augmenting student performance.
