New Digication

Digication has released an updated version of the ePortfolio builder with a modern user interface.  This interface has been designed to be more intuitive to those familiar with mobile apps and to be more mobile friendly.  For the 2017-18 academic year, UB's Digication configuration will prompt users to choose either Classic Digication or New Digication when creating a new ePortfolio.

Beginning with the summer session in 2018, all new ePortfolios will be created in New Digication.  Users can continue editing portfolios that have been created in Classic, but Digication will no longer be supporting Classic or making updates to correspond to browser upgrades.

Only the ePortoflio builder is impacted by this update.  Digication Courses Sites will look and function as they always have.

New Digication versus Classic Digication

  • Published ePortfolios in New Digication are much more visually appealing with a more modern look and feel.
  • New Digication promotes multi-modal communication more effectively by facilitating the layering and weaving together of text, images, and files and allows for greater customization of colors, backgrounds, and fonts.
  • New Digication allows for ePortfolio creation on the go: the new interface works with mobile devices to allow students to access the camera from within New Digication to create and upload photos and videos in a single step.
  • ePortfolio themes can be saved and applied across any number of ePortfolios.
  • User uploaded files remain in a file library, allowing users to store files and use them in any number of different ePortfolios.
  • A new web search feature within the interface allows users to search the web for images that are in the Creative Commons and freely available for use in ePortfolios.
  • When users publish pages within the ePortfolio, only those pages appear in the published ePortoflio menu.
