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 existing 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.
You can create a new Page by clicking on the ‘Create page’ button.
The first screen you encounter allows you to create the title and description of the Page. The title is mandatory, and you may want to think about tags for the page too. You can see across the top-right that the ‘Edit title and description’ button is greyed out (because you are currently on that Page, but it is there for you to come back later if you want to add more details to the Page.
Once you have entered a title and possibly a tag and saved your changes, you will be presented with the 'Edit content' screen. The menu on the left contains all the different types of content that you can add to your page by clicking and dragging the content you want into your page layout.
Content you can use include;

The example above shows the 'Embedded media' options when you drag that content option onto a page. You can upload content directly to your repository from the Portfolio page. If you later reorganize your folder/file structure the link on your page will not be broken.
By default Page layouts are three equal columns, but you can change this to a number of pre-configured layouts or create your own custom layout.
Select the 'Edit layout' tab from the top-right of the Pages screen. You can choose any of the pre-configured layouts or choose to create your own by selecting the 'Create custom layout' button at the bottom of the screen.
A Collection is a number of Pages that have been combined into one link.
Select the Collections tab at the top-left of the screen and then ‘New Collection’. Like creating a Page you need to provide a name, and possibly a description and tag(s). 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.
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.
