Adding students to ePortfolios groups

Groups are normally used in ePortfolios to contain all the students of their course and are most commonly used when instructors want to share specific pages or collections with those students.

The process for adding students to groups depends on the group type set up you are using:

Controlled course group (Recommended) This type of group allows students to be enrolled directly by instructor and is required if you want to allow students to make submissions to the group (submissions freeze pages or collections in a student's portfolio until those pages are assessed and released by instructors or TAs in the group).

Use the ePortfolios block in eClass

  1. (Recommended) Automatically create the group based on the enrolled users in your eClass course. See Creating ePortfolio Groups for Your eClass Course for instructions and more information.

OR:
