When evaluating job applications, prospective employers may look at the college transcripts of the applicant to assess the qualifications of the potential future employee. Transcripts only tell part of the story, however. While transcripts show the names of courses the student has taken and letter grades, they do not show the specific skills that the student developed and applied during his or her college career. This descriptive case study reports on the development of on-line student skills portfolios to complement student transcripts, using social media.
