Summary

ArtCenter.me is a service where every ArtCenter student can have a self-managed portfolio of the work they create each term. The process of curating a portfolio at the end of each term allows the students to fine-tune their presentation, becoming gradually more proficient at the curation process. 

Student work is also connected to courses, allowing users to view the creative work associated with each class — this is a feature that will continue to grow as more students use the platform. Lastly, ArtCenter.me includes a faculty directory and profile system that links courses the instructors led while also letting faculty upload their content and biographies.
