Adding Portfolios to a Course

Instructors can quickly add portfolios stored in the Content Collection to their courses. These portfolios can be viewed by all users enrolled in the course. Portfolios can be shared with a course and this process must be completed from the Content Collection tab.

Your school may disable the Portfolios tool or may not license the Content Collection; in these cases the option will not be available within your course.

All portfolios that have been shared with a course are located on the Course Portfolios page. Click Course Portfolios in the Control Panel under Course Toolsto access the portfolios homepage.
