bulb’s online student portfolios collect student work in one convenient place for teacher review. The clean and consistent format and targeted commenting system makes grading and feedback painless, and the drag-and-drop interface lets students upload experiments, reports, and art projects in no time—or create them from scratch. Portfolios are multimedia, so students can upload text, Pinterest photos and YouTube videos or embed PDFs, Word files, or documents from Google Drive. Teachers can also use bulb to upload lessons and demos to share with students.
“We built bulb to create knowledge. In other words, bulb allows users to curate content and then refine those ideas into useable knowledge and ultimately showcase the results to an audience,” said Eric Goldreyer, CEO and co-founder of bulb. “Most importantly, bulb is your very own and is designed to make your hard work look amazing.”

This means students are building beautiful portfolios of their work without even realizing it. bulb can be used in any subject, creating a tangible demonstration of personalized, integrated learning, relevant to wherever a student’s path takes them in life.
