A portfolio is a collection of digital documents called artefacts. A portfolio shows what mile stones you have achieved. There are lots of ways in which a portfolio can be build. This article describes how a portfolio can be shared with others.

What is it?

At any given moment the collection of artefacts can be ‘frozen’. This results in the creation of a so called snapshot. This snapshot can be shared with otheres to be reviewed. And while it is being reviewed, you can continue to work on the artifacts. These changes are not instantly visible for any one with which the portfolio has been shared. Below, you will find a describtion of how to share a portfolio..

To share a portfolio you need to take the following steps:

Go to the portfolio through:

Share with an User
Give the Blackboard-accountname of the person with whom you want to share your portfolio. In case you don’t know the accountname, you can use the browse button to search for the name. You can give multiple account names, provided they are separated by a comma.
You can let Blackboard send an email to the persons, to let them know that there is a portfolio waiting for them. If that is what you want, tick the appropriate box and change the default text if necessary.
