FAQ
Can I see what other people have created?
Several portfolios have been published and are
browse-able from the Welcome to UAS Online
page. As a participant in a course, you will be able
to view and comment on the portfolios of your
fellow students from the Class List.
Can anyone look at my ePortfolio?
By default, portfolios pages are viewable by others
but the person would need to know how to get to
it. In the Manage Page option, you can restrict the
access settings.
I’d like to share pictures with my family, how
can non-university people look at my page?
As above, they will be able to view it. You will
simply want to send an invitation to them.
How do I create an easier web address for my
portfolio?
Go to PUB (Personal URL Builder) at
http://www.uas.alaska.edu/pub to create an easy
address for any of your sites.
If I put stuff on my portfolio, can I use it
elsewhere?
Items added to a page can be shared between
pages. Pages in the portfolio system can be copied
within the system.

In General
UAS ePortfolio is an online, webbased portfolio. Basically it allows you
to share your work with anyone who has
Internet access. You will be able to add to and
change your portfolio throughout your academic
life at UAS.
Pages: A place for your
content
Send invitations
In the UAS portfolio system a page is the basic container for your content.
You have posted your work on the portfolio and
would like someone look at it. How do you alert
them that great stuff is out there? Send them an
invitation!
To adjust the look and behavior of a page, follow the
Manage Page link in the upper right corner. Use the
General Settings to modify the title and appearance.

Coursework Portfolios
For each class you are enrolled in you will be able
to create a collection of work. Your instructor
may have specific requirements for your portfolio,
or you may simply want a place to keep your work!
Unless you change your
settings, your course
portfolio will be viewable to
anyone who can see the class
list for your class, and only
your instructor and fellow
students will be able to
comment on your work.
To begin a course portfolio,
log in to your class in
UASOnline and follow the
ePortfolio link in the left
navigation bar. This will
create a portfolio page for
that course.
General Portfolios
You can create portfolios for a variety of other
reasons not associated with a specific course.
To create a more general
portfolio, log in to
UASOnline and follow the
View Portfolio link at the
bottom of your profile.
Items are the way to present documents, audio/video
clips, pictures, or anything else created on a
computer.
To create an item on a page, follow the Add Portfolio
Item link in the lower right corner, give it a title, an
abstract (brief description), and then compose the
content.
An item may include comments by others, a selfreflection, and assessment from your instructors.
These additional parts will always follow the item,
wherever you add it in your portfolio.
Blog - journal of your thoughts
To send an invitation, follow
the Send Invitation link in
the lower right corner. In
the Recipients field type
the email addresses or
usernames you want to
send to. Follow the Send
link to send your invite via
email.
Publishing your portfolio
Once you have your portfolio written and are updating
your blog nightly, you’ll probably want to attract people
to your site. As people visit your site, you may find
yourself in the Top Ten most Popular Portfolios, maybe
even competing for the #1 spot!
Blogs allow you to periodically add content. When a
person views your page, they will see the most
current entry first. The weblog will also save an
archive of all entries.
To add a weblog to a page, follow the Manage Page
link. Go to Content Settings and check the box for
Display a weblog on the page.
Forum - discussion with others
An online forum allows you to hold a discussion with
people across time and space. It is an excellent tool
for communicating and keeping a record of that
communication.
To add a forum, follow the Manage Page link. Go to
Content Settings and check Display a forum on this
page.
To publish your portfolio, follow the Manage Page
link in the upper right corner. Go to the Publish Page
and check Publish Page.
