1. How do I get to my ePortfolio?

  • Sign into UAS Online and click the View Portfolio link on the front page.
  • Go to any UAS Online course and click the Portfolio link on the navigation bar.
  • Click on the Portfolio: View link from a class list. This link will only appear once content has been added to a portfolio for that course.

2. How do I make a blog (web log)?

Choose a page in your portfolio to have the blog, then go to Manage Page andContent Setting, finally check the box to Display a weblog.

3. How do I make a page of my portfolio so anyone can find it?

Within your portfolio, choose Manage Page and click the Publish button. It's a good idea to give your page a good title and description, otherwise it will be difficult to search for.

4. What are others doing with their portfolios?

From the UAS Online main page, click the Browse Portfolios link. Check out what's new, what's popular, or search for something interesting.

5. How do I restore an item that has been removed from a page?

Go to the page, click the Manage Page link in the upper right. In Content Settings: Current Items, click Browse. You will then see a list of all of the items that have ever been added to any your portfolio pages. Find the item that was removed and click the Add button.

6. How do I make thumbnails of my images for posting in my portfolio?

The ePortfolio system can make thumbnails for you. To create a thumbnail when uploading your images, in Options for Images, choose Version to Display = Small and Click-to-View = Enabled. When the attachment has been added, preview your posting to see how it will look. The initial image will be small, and when someone clicks on it, a new window will open with the original size of the image.

7. My invitees report that they are prompted for a password when trying to access my portfolio, how can I fix that?

By default all portfolio pages are viewable by anyone, so double-check the following setting. Go to Manage Page, Access Settings, and set the General Access to unrestricted. This will ensure that anyone you invite will be able to view the page.

8. What is a forum, and how do I create one?

A forum is a place on an ePortfolio page where you and others can engage in discussions.

To add a forum to any portfolio page, simply go to Manage Page, then Content Settings and Forum Settings, and check the box to Display a Forum on this page.

9. How can participants in my forum create new topics?

As explained in the Forum Settings, "People with General Access can view content and Reviewers can post."

By default, for course portfolios, all participants in the class are reviewers.  For non-course portfolios, no one is a reviewer.  

To add a reviewer go to Manage Page, then Access Settings, and put the usernames of the people you want to review in the Reviewers text box.

10. Can I see what other people have created?

Several portfolios have been published and are browsable from the "Welcome to UAS Online" page.  As a participant in a course, you will be able to view and comment on the portfolios of your fellow students from the class list.

11. Can anyone look at my ePortfolio?

By default, portfolios pages are viewable by others but the person would need to know how to get to it.  In the "Manage Page" option, you can restrict the access settings.

12. I’d like to share pictures with my family, how can non-university people look at my page?

As above, they will be able to view it.  You will simply want to send an invitation to them.

13. How do I create an easier web address for my portfolio?

Go to PUB (Personal URL Builder) at http://www.uas.alaska.edu/pub to create an easy address for any of your sites.

14. If I put stuff on my portfolio, can I use it elsewhere?

Uploaded items added to a page can be shared between pages.  Pages in the portfolio system can be copied within the system.
