This article, published in the AAEEBL Web site by Kathryn Coleman (Deakin U.) discusses how ePortfolios fulfill many different, but interrelated functions based on the perspective of the author and the audience, which are outlined in great detail. It's worth a read for anyone working with ePortfolio.
To get started using ePortfolio in your courses, check out Digication's Course Guide, it offers a complete overview of courses, templates, and other instructional tools in ePortfolio.
The instructions below provide a brief overview of the process for creating a course in ePortfolio and assigning a template or course portfolio to students. For detailed instructions on how to carry out each step, check Digication’s Help content or contact the Center for Teaching & Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org | 614-823-1035.
Once a portfolio has been assigned to a course, each student will have a copy that is independent from the original. Students will be able to make changes and access the content as long as their account remains active. Please note that any changes made to the original portfolio after it is assigned to the course will not appear in the student copies.
