The self-help resources below cover some of the basics of using ePortfolio as a student. If you need further assistance, please contact the Library. When the Library is closed, ePortfolio help is available from the D2L Customer Support Desk; call 1-877-325-7778.  (D2L is the company responsible for Brightspace.)

ePortfolio is the Brightspace tool for storing, organizing, reflecting on, and sharing items that represent your learning. To access ePortfolio, click on ePortfolio on the navigation bar in any course in Brightspace.

ePortfolio Overview

Use the My Items tab to upload and organize your files. ePortfolio calls the items you import “artifacts.” For an introduction to the ePortfolio user interface and an introduction to artifacts, see Brightspace ePortfolio User Interface Overview.

Tagging

When you upload files, you may tag them with keywords or descriptive labels. Tags can organize, describe, and help you locate the artifacts in your ePortfolio. Your program may have already established a set of tags for you to use.

Collections

Collections are groups of artifacts. For help creating collections, seeCreating New Collections.

You may add artifacts to a collection either individually or by creating a tag list that will automatically populate the collection. For help adding items to a collection with a tag list, see Add Items to a Collection Using a Tag List.

Sharing

You may share ePortfolio artifacts with professors or classmates at Saint Joseph’s College. For help sharing artifacts, see Sharing Items with Internal Users.

Presentations

Presentations let you compile ePortfolio artifacts into a web project to showcase your achievements.

Saving

You may export your ePortfolio to an external site in order to access it after you no longer have access to Brightspace. For help see Exporting your ePortfolio to MyD2L (PDF).
