Use Digication on a mobile device

Version: Kora Courses, February 01, 2024 or later
Permissions required: Student

NOTE: Although the new Kora course and assignment features have not yet been optimized for mobile, all other features remain fully optimized for mobile.

  • Digication ePortfolios are designed with a mobile-friendly layout, ensuring that they have the same look and feel when viewed on a smartphone or tablet as they do on a desktop computer.
  • There are a few key design differences in mobile view which facilitate viewing and navigation within the smaller screen area. 
  • While the vast majority of the features that are available on the desktop are also available on the mobile device, there are a number of features that are not available in mobile view, as outlined at the bottom of the article.

Mobile view

Mobile view refers to the appearance of the Digication platform when viewed on a mobile device, such as a tablet or smartphone, as opposed to a desktop or laptop computer. You should be able to use Digication on any device as long as you are using a supported browser.  

For a list of supported browsers, please see “Supported Web Browsers and Operating Systems”. 

Adding a module in mobile view

On a desktop computer, you will see the Add Content option wherever you scroll within your ePortfolio in mobile view.  

  • Click 'Add Content' (1) to add a module.

Vertical layout

  • Due to the limited screen size, the layout of individual sections and pages will be oriented vertically in mobile view.  
  • Modules that appear side-by-side in desktop view will appear stacked on top of one another in mobile view.

Conversations

  • The Conversations tool has a slightly limited functionality in mobile view.  
  • In normal, desktop view, the Conversations tool allows you to add in-line comments, as well as page-level comments.  In mobile view, you will only be able to make page-level comments (1).

Record audio

Due to the inability to activate the microphone independently of the camera on a mobile device, the record audio feature is unavailable. 

The majority of features, including the rich text toolbar, library, and ePortfolio settings function the same in mobile as in a normal browser.
