Adding Artifacts

Artifacts are examples of your work. You must first upload your files, create reflections, etc. into ePorfolio in order to add them to a Collection or Presentation.

Adding Reflections

Use reflections to discuss items in your ePortfolio, record your thoughts on topics that interest you, set goals, and think critically about your learning.

  1. On the My Items page, click Reflections from the Add button.

  3. Enter your thoughts in the Reflection field.
  4. Select “Allow others to add/view comments if they have sufficient permission” if you want to provide others the option to comment on your reflection.
  5. Click Save.

Adding a Link

If you want to include an existing website as an artifact in your ePortfolio, you can reference the address (URL) for the site rather than uploading files.

  1. On the My Items page, click Link from the Add button.

  2. Enter the Name you want the URL to be stored as.
  3. Enter the URL.
  4. Enter a Description of the site or its significance to your ePortfolio.
  5. Add any tags you want the artifact to have.
    • Tags are words you associate with an object to make items easier to find. You can search for items with specific tags, and other users can use your tags to search for items. To make a multiple-word tag, place double quotes around the entire phrase. For example: typing "winter project" makes the two words a single tag.
  6. Click Save.
