Portfolios provide a way for students to efficiently collect and organize artifacts representative of work completed over time.
For information on creating, editing and sharing portfolios in UB Learns, see the UB Learns Student Help website.
Students should not choose External Users when sharing a portfoio. The email that the external user receives will be missing the link to the portfolio.
Students sharing a portfolio with their instructors should use Users.
Blackboard is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.
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.
If students take too long when typing content into any UB Learns content editor and the browser times out or the internet connection is lost, they will lose the content.
To avoid unexpected loss of content, students should compose content off-line in a word processor (such as Microsoft Word) and then copy and paste the content into their portfolio.
The Portfolios tool can be accessed in two way:
By default, the Portfolios Homepage link should be available on your course's Tools page. If you don't see it, follow the directions below.
Portfolio templates in UB Learns can only be created by a UB Learns administrator.
Use the form below to request a new template.
Portfolio snapshot submissions made through an assignment aren't listed in the student's list of shared portfolio snapshots and can't be rescinded like other sharing events.
Portfolios shared using the User or Course options are listed in Tools > Portfolios > Shared with Me.
You can request that students submit portfolios for course assignments.
