ePortfolio - Uploading Artifacts

While doing your portfolio you will get a lot of practice uploading artifacts. By assembling everything you will need for your portfolio and uploading those artifacts before anything else you will find mastering this part of the process simple, and with some updates to D2L and a change in the process you will find this part faster and easier than ever.

Basic Information:  This document outlines the basics of ePortfolio creation. This document is part of a series on ePortfolio creation. The other articles will be listed at the bottom.

 If this is your first time learning about how to upload an artifact, and you do not have something to upload, then create something.  It can be anything - paper, document, picture - but you need to have something to upload, to be able to follow along with the instructions.

1. Begin by logging into D2L and visit the course ePortfolio area.


2. Click the My Items tab.

3. Click the +Add drop-down menu and choose File Upload from the list..

File Upload

4. Drag the file you are uploading to the area surrounded by the dotted line, or click the Upload button and browse for your file.


5. Once your file appears, click the Add button at the bottom left of the window.


6.  On the confirmation screen you see, click the Next button.  Now is a good time to note how big of a file you are adding.  Remember that you only have 100 MB of total storage for all of your portfolios.  So if you are uploading something more than 10 MB, you should seek out help to try making it smaller.

Add artifact

7. Give your artifact the name that you would like to have appear above it in your portfolio.  This is also the name you will use to locate the artifact in your My Items section later.  Once you have done that click Save at the bottom.


8. On the final confirmation screen click Save and Close.

Save and Close

9. Your artifact can now be found by going back to My Items.
