E-portfolio Logistics

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I have some questions about the logistics of using e-portfolio. If I create an e-portfolio as a student, can the eaher automatically see it? And then by making it public, can other students see it? Is there any way in which someone besides the uploader could edit the files?

Also, does anyone know if e-portfolios are indexed? Can they be found by a google search, for example.

Thanks!

Hi  @batkinso ​...

I think part of your question can be answered by looking at the text you'd see when you click on the "ePortfolio" button after going to your Canvas profile:

ePortfolios are a place where you can display and discuss the significant submissions and experiences that are happening during your learning process. You can use an ePortfolio to:

  • Display the papers you're proud of for more than just your instructor to see
  • Talk about all the thought and work that went into your class submissions
  • Gather an overview of your educational experience as a whole
  • Share your work with friends, future employers, etc.

ePortfolios can be public for everyone to see, or private so only those you allow can see, and you can change that setting at any time.

I'm not sure if you have seen these, but here are a number of Canvas Guides for both instructors and students on ePortfolios.

Instructors: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-4131#jive_content_id_ePortfolios

Students: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-4121#jive_content_id_ePortfolios

There is information in these Guides about how to share a link to one's ePortfolio, too...which I think gets at your question about being able to search for them.

Hope this information is helpful to you, Bryana!
