Using LibGuides for Portfolio Management

When I taught a section of a small, in-person information skills course, I used LibGuides as a course management system. I also had each student create a personal LibGuide and update it with library resources on a chosen topic throughout the course. Each completed guide acted as a final portfolio project for the course. The reasons I used LibGuides this way were: 1) I found our own course management system too detailed and clunky for my course; 2) to teach the students some new technology skills; 3) to make it easier for classmates to share their efforts and for me to grade their assignments; 4) so each student would have a customized research guide they could access after the course ended.
