He has been developing a dance based  format he calls Choreographic Services since 2013. This aspect of his work is focused on underscoring real time and economic conditions that are integral to the discipline of  choreography.

Share / Access Course e-Portfolios

Step-By-Step Instructions for Sharing + Accessing a Course e-Portfolio in O-Space


A course ePortfolio is created by a faculty member as a way to share digital course content with students. In many ways it is similar to creating a custom website for the course. It allows for more custom design and multi-media functionality than the CMS.


Faculty Top Tips

When creating a course ePortfolio . . .

  • Remember, students do NOT automatically have access like the CMS. You need to add them to the ePortfolio. See below.
  • For the title include "YEAR + SEMESTER + CLASS TITLE + FACULTY NAME" to keep your ePortfolios organized as well as make it easy for students to recognize.


Faculty: Share a Course e-Portfolio 

  • Log into O-Space
  • Go to your course listed under the gray heading "My Courses"

  • Enter the title of your ePortfolio and select "Search"

  • Select the correct ePortfolio
  • Select "Add"
  • You now determine user access

O-Space Help Select Student Level

Students: Access a Course e-Portfolio

You have three options for accessing a course ePortfolio.


Users can "subscribe" to topics in courses and communities as well as to ePortfolios. Once a user has "subscribed", they will be automatically emailed every time new content is added to that topic, that topic is modified, or new replies to the topic are posted.

  • To SUBSCRIBE simply click on the Subscribe link.
  • To UNSUBSCRIBE click on the Unscribe link.

To manage all of your subscriptions, click on the "SUBSCRIPTIONS LINK" in the top menu.
