Here is a link to a site called Coroflot ("The fast, easy way to get your creative projects online and in front of the right people") which is popular among design students I'm told. It allows all kinds of designers (architects, industrial designers, graphic designers, etc.) and at all kinds of levels (from students to pro's) to put their portfolios online, and to attract business. This could be a nice resource to use in U101, especially in discussing and critiqueing the designs of other people (for example in Block 1: How to Comment on Other People's Work).
Anyway have look here: Coroflot Portfolios
