50-010 Creating and editing a portfolio task as a learning resource


For a teacher-driven assessment portfolio to be embedded in a course, the first thing needed is a portfolio template.

The Portfolio 2.0 template is a learning resource that is created and set up in the Authoring like all learning resources. In this HelpCard you will learn how to create and edit a portfolio template.

Important Steps

  1. Click on authoring in the main menu. The authoring opens.
  2. Click on the Create button at the top right. A drop-down menu opens.
  3. Here click on Portfolio 2.0 Template. Now enter a title for your template and click on Create. The learning resource Portfolio 2.0 Template is now created and you are in the template settings. 
  4. If necessary, you can enter a description, title image or teaser film here. Save your changes. In the Metadata tab you can assign a licence (see HelpCard 00-040). In the Share tab you can make your Portfolio 2.0 template available to others (see HelpCard 10-070).
  5. In the Options tab, further configurations of the portfolio can be made.
