How do I edit an item in my ePortfolio?

Updated on

It is possible to edit the items in your ePortfolio. This can for example be handy when a teacher has pushed a template to you, or when you want to make use of the feedback you received on one of your items. There's a distinction between edits on the following items:

Editing a presentation(template)

For some courses the teacher may push a presentation template to your ePortfolio. You can edit this in the following way:

  1. Click the arrow next to the presentation you want to edit.
  2. Click Edit.
  1. At the Properties tab you can edit details such as the title and description of the presentation.
  2. At the Content/Layout tab you can edit the content and layout of the presentation.
  3. At the Banner tab you can edit the title and description of the banner at the very top of the presentation.
  4. At the Theme tab you can edit the theme (layout) of the presentation.

When there is no Save bottom at the bottom of the page, the modifications made are saved automatically.

The editing process from this point on is functionally identical to creating the presentation itself. For more information on how to do this, check How to make a presentation in my ePortfolio?

Editing a title/link

A title/link to a file in your ePortfolio, does not need to have the same name as the actual file it is linked to. An explanation of how to modify the title without changing the document can be found below.
