A Portfolio can be a single Page, or a Collection of Pages. A Collection can be associated with the evidence you need to provide to an accrediting professional body like AHPRA.

The sub-menu for Portfolio includes:

  • Pages
  • Collections
  • Shared by me
  • Shared with me
  • Export
  • Import

Once you have created your Page(s) you can share them via a weblink. You can also export and import any LEAP2A (ePortfolio standard) formatted content between different ePortfolio platforms.

 

There are two pre-configured pages: the Dashboard page and your Profile page. You cannot delete them, but you can edit them by clicking on the pencil icon. You can then change what you display on your dashboard and/or profile pages.

By then Saving by clicking on the ‘Next: Edit collection pages’ button at the bottom left of the screen you select the pages you want to add to the collection.

Build your collection by adding pages

Select the pages you want to add, click ‘Add pages’ when all check boxes have been checked and then the 'Done' button on the bottom-left of the screen to create your collection.
