Key Concepts

The portfolio has a number of key features you should be aware of.  We’ll get into these in more detail in other parts of the tutorial, but for now we'll summarize the various parts of the e-Portfolio system.

  • Blocks
    Blocks are pieces of content that you drag into your portfolio page when you are creating or editing it.
  • Collections
    Collections allow you to create a single “portfolio” from a group of portfolio pages.
  • Connections
    Connections are other users on the site that you have identified as people you want to share your portfolio with, or who you want to communicate with through the site.
  • Files
    The Files section contains uploaded files you want to share with other users, or that you want to archive for your own collection.  You can upload documents, PDF files, images, audio, and limited video.
  • Groups
    Groups allow you to connect with other users in the system.  Groups can be used for portfolio submission and peer assessment.
  • Journals
    Journals are a blog-like tool that can be brought into your portfolio page.  This allows you to engage in private and/or public blogging without having to subscribe to other social networking services.
  • Page
    A page is a single portfolio page.  This is where the bulk of your presentation work will be done.  Two default pages already exist:
    • Dashboard – this is the page you see when you log into the e-Portfolio and when you click the Home link.
    • Profile View – this is the page others see when they click on your Profile.
  • Plans
    Plans allows you to create a learning plan or a list of tasks that can be marked as completed.
  • Resume
    The Resume section allows you to create an online resume that highlights your portfolio work.
  • Sharing
    The Sharing section allows you to share your pages and collections with other users.
