What is the ePortfolio Getting Started Wizard?

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.

The ePortfolio Getting Started Wizard helps you learn how to create your ePortfolios.
