The ePortfolio component of D2L allows students and staff to create ePortfolio presentations. These presentations may be submitted to a D2L course dropbox, shared with others on campus, and shared with others outside the university. The ePortfolio presentation is linked to each student, however a course may assign an ePortfolio component and have the entire presentation submitted to a dropbox. The dropbox gives faculty a snap shot of the ePortfolio presentation.
Do not use the "quicklinks", use "insert stuff" instead. Quicklinks are only for external web links and insert stuff is for linking to any items within your ePortfolio space such as images and artifacts. Insert stuff is the botton right next to the quicklink. In the image below the quicklink has been crossed off. Watch this video for instructions.
