How can I share a private ePortfolio?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.

Sharing a private ePortfolio link will give others access to viewing your ePortfolio without having to log into Canvas.

All ePortfolios are, by default, private. This means that only you can see the contents of the portfolio. To share your ePortfolio, you will need to copy and paste the link into an email or other sharing utility.

Copy ePortfolio Link

To copy the ePortfolio link, right click on the share link and select the option to Copy.

You can also click the share link and the URL will appear in your address bar. Highlight the link, right click, and select the option to Copy.
