Overview

This article describes the steps involved in using the Brightspace ePortfolio tool to create electronic portfolio presentations to show skills and knowledge to others.

What is an ePortfolio presentation?

A presentation is a means for demonstrating your achievements to other people. You select the artifacts, reflections, and other items you wish to share and use the ePortfolio tool to remix them into a presentation that looks and behaves like a website.

Creating a presentation within the ePortfolio

Creating a presentation is a four-step operation.

  1. Select New Presentation from the Dashboard page. On the following page, name your presentation on the Properties tab.
  2. Select the Content/Layout tab to edit the presentation display. Here you set the navigation and the page content.
  3. The Banner tab is used to set the title text at the top of each presentation page.
  4. Use the Theme tab to select the color scheme and table layout of the pages.

No need to worry about saving your choices. They are automatically saved each time you click off a tab.
