This module covers how OER Common's portfolio can assist you in getting quick access to your most important OER materials. Maximize the power of OER Commons by using the portfolio to personalize your experience.

The module“ Tagging, Rating, and Reviewing OER Materials ”showed how you can begin contributing to OER Commons by using tags as well as rating and reviewing materials. This module,“My OER Portfolio,”explains how the OER Portfolio can maximize your experience in using OER Commons.

What is my oer portfolio?

When you register for a free account at OER Commons, a portfolio and profile is automatically created. Every time you save a search, add tags, ratings, reviews, comments, or submit your own instructional materials to OER Commons, these items are stored in your portfolio. You can quickly access all these items by clicking on the My OER Portfolio link located on the top of any OER Commons page.

Having a portfolio and profile in OER Commons can stimulate collaboration among educators and learners within and across disciplines.

The advantages to using your portfolio is that it:

  • personalizes your OER Commons experience
  • provides quick access to your most important OER materials
  • manages all your OER Commons items in one place
  • provides a history of your OER Commons activity
  • makes it possible to share your OER items with others

Activity: adding an oer saved search to your portfolio

  • Go to OER Commons . You must be logged in to do this activity.
  • Locate any OER item by searching with a keyword or clicking on a tag.
  • On the results page, click the“Save This Search”button.
  • This search is now saved in your portfolio.
  • Go to your portfolio to view your saved search.

Activity: saving an oer item in your portfolio

  • Go to OER Commons . You must be logged in to do this activity.
  • Locate any OER item by searching with a keyword or clicking on a tag.
  • The results page appears with a listing of materials. Click on a title.
  • Under the title click the link“Save Item.”
  • The item is now saved in your portfolio.
  • Go to your portfolio to view the saved item.

Activity: saving tags, ratings, and reviews to your portfolio

Go to the module Tagging, Rating, and Reviewing OER Materials to learn how to create tags, ratings, and reviews, which are automatically saved to your portfolio as they are created.

Activity: saving notes to your portfolio

  • Go to OER Commons . You must be logged in to do this activity.
  • Locate any OER item by searching with a keyword or clicking on a tag.
  • The results page appears with a listing of materials. Click on a title.
  • Under the title click the link“My Notes.”
  • Create a note in the notes field, then click the“Save”button.
  • The note is now saved in your portfolio.
  • Go to your portfolio to view the saved note.

Searching your portfolio

You can search for items that exist only in your portfolio. You must be inside your portfolio to access this search feature.

You can quickly jump to different items in your portfolio by using the navigation located in your portfolio on the left side of your screen. See Figure 1 for a visual representation of the portfolio navigation.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
