In addition to displaying your files visually within ePortfolio pages, you also have the option to link any of your files in a rich text module, similar to "hyperlinks".


Adding a file to a rich text module

  • Files can be linked inside a Rich Text module by selecting the module and clicking  Edit (1).
  • Next, select the text you want to convert into a link for your file (2) and click the attachment button (3) on the text style window to go to your Library.
  • Now you can select a previously uploaded document to your ePortfolio (4) or cloud document service, upload a new file (5), record new video (6) and audio (7) files, or add a webpage (8) as the destination of your link.

    For more information on uploading files to your ePortfolio, please see “Uploading files to your ePortfolio”. 

  • Once you have chosen your file, it will display as a link in your text module.  Clicking the link will result in a prompt that gives you the choice to either Open in Browser or Download File (9).


Edit or delete a hyperlink

  • You can change or remove a link by selecting your linked text and clicking the link button (1) on the text style window.
  • The text style window will then allow you to either remove the linked file from the module (2) or you can go back to your Library (3) to link a different file.

Styling links

  • After the hyperlink is set, click Module Settings (1) and scroll down the settings to Advanced Customization (2).



  • In the Advanced Customization menu, scroll down to Link (3) and click to expand. In the expanded menu, you can change the typeface, font size, color, and other characteristics of the links in your Rich Text module.

For more information on how to style hyperlinks, please see “Hyperlinks in rich text modules.
