Portfolio Development Courses

LearningCounts offers two online portfolio development courses to help you create a Learning Portfolio that can be assessed for under graduate college credit and applied toward a college degree or certificate. You must complete one of our courses before submitting a portfolio for college credit.

Before enrolling in either course, be sure you meet these requirements:

  • Be able to write at the college level. That means you have completed or tested out of English Composition, or another course that required lengthy college papers.
  • Have taken an online course before. All the assignments for LearningCounts courses must be submitted through our Learning Management System.
  • Have several years of professional experience.
  • Have access to a computer connected to the Internet daily for at least 8 weeks.
  • Be able to access and upload work products and/or certificates that help verify the college level learning you obtained outside the classroom is worth college credit.
