Collections are groups of artifacts, reflections, presentations, and learning objectives. A good way to think of it is like a folder, where you can store and organize all of your items that you’ve put in ePortfolio.
An item can belong to multiple collections at the same time. For example, you could add a paper you wrote to a collection called “Papers” as well as a collection called English 101” and there will only be one copy of the paper (artifact).
To create a collection:
Go to the right hand side of your D2L homepage and click on Tools. Then select ePortfolio.
On the right hand side, click New Collection.
Give the collection a Name and Description.
Add any tags you’d like the collection to have. Tags are words you associate with an object to make items easier to find. You can search for items with specific tags, and other users can use your tags to search for items. To make a multiple-word tag, place double quotes around the entire phrase. For example: typing "winter project" makes the two words a single tag. To make a private tag that only you can see, type an "@" symbol in front of the tag. Users will not see that tag when you share the item with them.
Click save and close.
Note: Items cannot be added to the collection until it is saved
Add a reflection and comments if you would like.
