ePortfolios expanding section

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.  There are Q & A sessions offered every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during the semester from 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. in 23 Wing.
