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. Please read the D2L ePortfolio Overview document below to learn a little bit about ePortfolio then watch the videos below to learn how to navigate, add artifacts, create collections, and create and share presentations of your ePortfolio. .
D2L ePortfolio Overview (PDF)
In the D2L ePortfolio, reflections are independent items in your ePortfolio that you can associate or link to Artifacts, Collections, or Presentations. In other words, unlike comments, they are not tied to any single file. You can use them to discuss the relationship between items. You can also use Reflections to define long-term goals that are met by the various items.
As with all the tools in the ePortfolio, the actual use of this item is up to you. For example, while you can create a web-based Presentation in your ePortfolio to display a number of different items, you can use a Reflection to discuss the relationship between items.
Collections are like folders of items: they are groups of Artifacts, Reflections, and/or Presentations that you can create and use for organizing your ePortfolio items.
Exporting and Edudentity
When you export an item, you also export the item’s description, tags, and settings. You do not export information about the user who created the item, users who left comments on the item, or assessments for the item.
With the exception of HTML presentations, you cannot export items for offline viewing. Exported items can only be imported into another Brightspace ePortfolio or systems that support the Brightspace ePortfolio XML format.
You can export your entire Brightspace ePortfolio or specific items. If an item has multiple associations, it will only appear once in the exported zip file.
