Pressfolios open to all students

pressfolios

Pressfolios, a service that recently re-launched in private beta, is now open to any college student journalist who requests access from a .edu e-mail account. Here’s the official company announcement.

To help the next generation of journalists get a leg up, Pressfolios will now offer open access to all colleges and universities who wish to help their students build a better portfolio.

Pressfolios is currently in private beta. Creating a custom access code will allow your students to bypass our waitlist and get started on their Pressfolio before the semester ends. Students signing up with custom codes will also be given special access to new features as we continue to expand.

Here are some details about the new version of Pressfolios from the company’s blog.

Here’s an example from my admittedly limited experience with the site.
