Portfolios provide a way for students to efficiently collect and organize artifacts representative of work completed over time.
Portfolios can be accessed through the Tools page in the Ultra Base Navigation (main UB Learns navigation) or the Tools area of a course.
There is an issue with Chrome on Windows where the tool formatting bar does not appear on a page with multiple sections. Without the toolbar, students are not able to format text, add images and videos, etc.
If students add text to a section without the toolbar and click the Save button, only the Artifacts area will show. However, the text content is still there. The text will be visible after exiting the portfolio and clicking Edit.
We recommend using Firefox or Edge on Windows. This issue does not affect browsers on macOS.
Description (in Sections)
Artifacts from a course must be graded before they can be added to a portfolio.
When you share your portfolio, you are sharing a snapshot of it at that point in time. If you make edits to the portfolio, you will need to share it again.
An instructor can create assignments that require portfolios to be submitted. For those instances, you will see two options when submitting the assignment: Attach Portfolio and Create Portfolio.
In some cases, external users may not be able to open Portfolio Snapshots shared by email. The external user will receive a message stating that "An error occurred. Contact the System Administrator."
Blackboard is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.
