A great overview of the new portfolio feature in Blackboard and a place to help you get started can be found at:

Creating Portfolios in Blackboard (YouTube 8:38, Jul 2014 by Swinburne University of Technology) www.youtube.com/watch?v=SO2tV56fwqE
Notes:

  • When the narrator refers to getting artifacts from ‘units’, he means getting artifacts from your course sites on Blackboard  :-)
  • Captioning has not been cleaned up (but his wonderful Australian accent makes for some funny mistakes in auto-captioning!)
  • Approximate time codes:
    0:00 – 1:24 overview
    1:24 – 3:18 add artifacts
    3:18 – 6:48 create a portfolio
    6:48 – 8:00 preview, change details, and customize style
    8:00 – 8:38 see settings, share, download, etc
