Canvas ePortfolio Rich Text Content Editor and Images

Jump to solution

Greetings Canvas Community,

I am resigned to the fact that Canvas will likely not make the rich context editor in the Canvas pages the same as the ePortfolio. With that said, I was wondering if there is a way images can be embedded using the rich text content editor in the Canvas ePortfolios? With new updates, the original icon for doing this is no longer present in the toolbar. 

Attached is a visual of the old Canvas ePortfolio rich text content editor. 

I am aware of the image/file upload in the Canvas ePortfolios, but I liked the prior option to embed images into the rich text content editor because images could be adjusted on the rich text content page. 

Thanks for your time!

Alexandria

@chofer Thanks for your time in responding to my question. 

I am familiar with Portfolium but appreciate your time in sharing the resource. On a side note, I prefer the simplicity of the Canvas ePortfolio.

I was just looking to see if there was a workaround way of adding an image to the Canvas ePortfolio using the rich text content editor. I am working on updating instructions for students on how to add images to the ePortfolio in noticing the rich text content editor has changed in the ePortfolio. It looks like the answer might be that the only way to add images is by using the Image/File upload link.

The magic question I acknowledge can't be answered is why Canvas changed the Portfolio rich text content editor. Or, the reason Canvas didn't make the rich text content editor the same in the ePortfolio as in the Canvas pages. 😪

Hello there, @Alexandria_1 ...

Not knowing what your instructor may be requiring of you for an ePortfolio, I won't have a complete answer for you.  However, do you know if your school's Canvas environment has access to Portfolium?  This is a different ePortfolio software that is integrated with Canvas.  It may have better options for you and your classmates compared to what you're currently using in the Canvas ePortfolios.  You can check to see if you have Portfolium integrated by logging in to Canvas and then clicking on your "Account" button in the left-hand global navigation menu.  Hopefully, you will see an item in the menu called "Folio".  This will bring you to a screen where you can access your ePortfolio in the Portfolium interface, import from Canvas, or start a new project.  Keep in mind that I don't believe anything you've currently done in the Canvas ePortfolio interface would carry over to the Portfolium interface.  There are many "how to" Guides available to you, too.

I'm not sure if any of this will be helpful to you or not, but I thought I'd offer up this alternative if your instructor wasn't aware of it and wanted to learn more about it.  Let Community members know if there are any other questions we can assist with...thanks!
