    The title of this class is a bit misleading because it's really not a class about creating an ONLINE portfolio, but rather a class that focuses on using InDesign to create a portfolio that can be presented in a variety of way including print, online, etc. If you're looking for a class on how to use InDesign to create a portfolio, then this should work for you. If you're looking for a class on how to create an ONLINE portfolio, you'll be disappointed.
