Coming Soon: Brightspace ePortfolio by D2L
Brightspace ePortfolio is an ‘electronic portfolio,’ which is simply a collection of digital artifacts that you pull together and assemble into a format that you can share with others. One of the benefits of using the D2L ePortfolio is that it is linked right inside of D2L, so it is easy to find and use. As a finished product, electronic portfolios can be used for a wide variety of reasons: you can use an ePortfolio to demonstrate learning, to put together a sample of work for an application, or to demonstrate your achievements to a potential employer.
