Showtime (http://showtime.arts.ac.uk/) is University of the Arts London’s online portfolio platform for graduating students to showcase their work. The University’s digital team (http://showtime.arts.ac.uk/pages/about) have been working away on some major redevelopments, including a design refresh and the addition of the following new features:
- Enhanced search – filter profiles by course and year (search by discipline coming soon)
- More information promoting summer shows and exhibitions
- Easy sharing to social media sites
- Integrated Facebook likes on the profiles
All graduating students can create their free, online profile (http://showtime.arts.ac.uk/pages/about) on the site, with an exclusive personalised URL which remains theirs for life. With over 250,000 visitors each year, this is a crucial self-promotion tool for all UAL graduates.
