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.
