Teaching and Learning Tools
Inside the ePortfolio Tool
The ePortfolio tab contains a dashboard of all the activities within your ePortfolio (see image):
The My Items tab will have an inventory of all the things you've create and uploaded into your ePortfolio. You will be able to filter the items by type - Artifacts, Collections, Presentations, Reflections, and Objectives, as well as if they were Shared or Unshared. (See image)
There are dropdown menus and buttons under the tabs: Add dropdown menu (see image), New Presentation and New Collection buttons (see image), and More Actions dropdown menu (see image). You can use these menus and buttons to create new items for your ePortfolio; add files from your computer, your Learn@UWSuperior locker, or course results; and organize your ePortfolio.
Artifacts are the items that you create using the HTML editor or upload into your ePortfolio. They can even be links to websites that support the purpose of your presentation.
Types of artifacts:
If you've added something you no longer want in your ePortfolio, you can use the Delete option in the More Actions dropdown menu to remove it.
Artifacts in your ePortfolio can be put into Collections to help you organize your ePortfolio area. You can have the same item or artifact in several collections without having to make a copy of it.
You can use the New Collection button to create a collection or the More Actions dropdown menu to add artifacts to existing collections.
Presentation can be used to "package" artifacts, reflections, collections, for sharing with peers, mentors, instructors or outside sources. You can create multiple presentations that you share with different audiences or submit to the Dropbox as an assignment.
You can use the New Presentation button to create a presentation or the More Actions dropdown menu to add artifacts to existing presentations.
Reflections can be written as a journal entry or like a blog, to explain what the items in your ePortfolio or presentation mean to you, your thought process, how certain feedback helped you progress in your studies, etc.
You can use the Add dropdown menu to create a reflection or the More Actions dropdown menu to add reflections to existing collections and presentations.
You can allow people to see, edit, add comments, and add assessments to your artifacts, reflections, and presentations.
In the My Items area, you can sort your artifacts, collections, and presentations by what you've shared and haven't shared with others.
