Project Summary:

E-portfolio training to veterans returning as students that integrates writing, video editing and information literacy. The project will strengthen student academic engagement and result in individualized electronic presentations fort job interviews or college transfer.

Project Outcome:

Our student veterans are quite similar in learning styles to our other students in that it is hard to get students to complete assignments that are not for a specific class. However, student veterans are very attentive and appreciative of programs designed for them, and the laptops obtained for this grant have been invaluable.
