What is the ePortfolio dashboard?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

The ePortfolio dashboard is a place to control visibility and settings.

From the ePortfolio dashboard, users can control visibility and other settings:

  1. The Getting Started Wizard link will help user customize your ePortfolio.
  2. The Go to the Actual ePortfolio link will show users what others see when they view your ePortfolio.
  3. Your ePortfolio is [privacy setting] heading tells you the current visibility of your ePortfolio. If your ePortfolio is Public anyone can view it if they know the address.
  4. If your ePortfolio is Private only those with a non-guessable special link you give them can access the information. The link is available by copying the destination of selecting the Copy and share this link... link or by going to your portfolio and sharing that URL.
  5. The Recent Submissions heading allows users to make any recent coursework part of an ePortfolio.
  6. Users can download the contents of an ePortfolio as a zip file by clicking the Download the contents of this ePortfolio as a zip file link.
  7. Users can delete an ePortfolio by selecting the Delete this ePortfolio link.
