How do I update Portfolio settings within my course?
Portfolios are a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase their learning artefacts and achievements that truly reflect their skills, personal development and capabilities for prospective employers.
As a course creator, they are also a valuable way to empower students to showcase their higher-order thinking skills, problem-solving and creativity beyond the course itself.
If Portfolios have been enabled by your institution, you can customise the Portfolio settings further per class, by following these steps:
Go to Course Setup > General
Select whether learning artefacts should be added to a students' Portfolio:
- Immediately after posting
- Never added automatically
- Yes, after a certain date
If you set a date to release the Portfolio, students can see their Portfolio items when they visit their Portfolio on their profile page, however it won't be publicly viewable until after the release date.
How can I change the default Portfolio Settings for a specific share widget?
The Portfolio Settings you set up in Course Setup > General are for course-level default settings. You can customise the Portfolio settings for specific share widgets.
To change the default Portfolio setting for a specific share widget:
Go to the widget you would like to customise the Portfolio setting for and select Share Settings
Select or deselect the option: Automatically add posts made from this widget to a student's Portfolio*
Students can decide whether their artefact is shared or hidden from their Portfolio by editing the setting on their artefact once shared in the Gallery:
Students can see and further customise their Portfolio on their profile page:
