So much of getting the portfolio completed as simply as possible comes down to how you break up the different tasks involved and manage your time.  The work you will do with your portfolio falls into four major phases:

  1. The work you do prior to working on the portfolio - things like completing assignments that will become the evidence and artifacts to be used in your portfolio, and also finding and downloading your portfolio template (if your program uses templates).
  2. Uploading your artifacts - the process by which you copy all of your artifacts from wherever they are (a flash drive, your computer, somewhere else) into D2L so that they can be used in a portfolio.
  3.  Preparing the portfolio - the step where you will begin to place all of your uploaded artifacts into your portfolio, and clean up any required text in the portfolio prompts.
  4.  Submitting the portfolio - the final thing that you must do in order for your faculty member to view and assess your portfolio.
By chunking your portfolio work this way, you will reduce the number of things you have to think about and learn how to do at any given point in the process.  There is no hard rule governing how much time you’ll spend in any given phase, but you can expect that most of your time will be spent in the first phase.   Submitting the portfolio will require the least amount of time.  Phases two and three will each require 10 minutes per artifact (although with practice and a good internet connection you can get that down to 1 minute per artifact or faster).
