Knowledgebase: Basic ePortfolio Usage
Editing Your ePortfolio Profile

Article Last Updated November 2018

Eportfolio users can customize their profile on the system by entering a range of information about themselves. Basic profile information is visible to users throughout the site, on the user's profile page, and can additionally be added as content to additional pages and collections.

To access the portfolio area, click on the top right navigation dropdown, open the Content section, and click on Profile.

The Profile area has 4 tabs, all with various details that an be entered. Some fields are not editable as the information is pulled directly from eClass - changes these fields need to be made in eClass (or in some cases depending on the type of information, in Bear Tracks.)

About Me

  • "First name": Populated from eClass.
  • "Last name": Populated from eClass.
  • "Student ID": Not required.
