ePortfolio: Students Start Here
An ePortfolio is a collection of your work which can help you identify connections between different courses, see developments in your work, and showcase what you can do.
D2L ePortfolio is part of the D2L system we use and is a personal file store with added tools to help work with and create portfolio presentations from the content you store. Keeping your work in D2L ePortfolio also helps you not lose it!
The USP uses ePortfolios as part of helping you keep and use the work you do for each course and think about it the bigger picture of your exploration of signature questions in University Studies. The Connect course (in your 4th or 5th semester) gives you a structured way to think about your studies around these questions and *requires* the assignments instructors are asking you to upload.
While the USP and several programs will require you to use ePortfolio, remember that it's yours. You can create websites with the presentation tool to complement your applications for jobs or graduate schools, or to enter into discourse on topics that engage you.
How do I use D2L ePortfolio?
