Logging in and creating an account.

So you have decided to build an e-Portfolio within the e-lab of Athabasca University! Congratulations! Where to start? It’s easy!

Access the e-Portfolio site with your AU credentials (username and password). This will create a new account for you automatically the first time you log in.  Some information about you will be pulled from your student records, including your name and email address.  You can modify this later by updating your profile.

After logging in for the first time, you will be returned to the Dashboard.  You will see some additional links to features within the website, including:

  • Dashboard, where you can see new activity among your connections and quickly access features in the site.
  • Content, where you can edit and upload content for your e-portfolio.  By default, anything you add to the Content section is private.  It must be added to a Portfolio page in order for others to see it. Here, you can edit your Profile, upload Files, create Journal entries, build Learning Plans, and even build a Resume.
  • Portfolio, where you can create portfolio pages and collections, then share them with others.
  • Groups, where you can find your fellow students and instructors.
