Adding and Editing Text


To add text to your ePortfolio you will first add a Rich Text module. 

To add a Rich Text module to your ePortfolio, click on the ePortfolio page where you would like to add the module. Note: You will be able to reposition and resize the module as well as customize the format and style of the text later as needed.

Click the blue Add Button (1), at the bottom, right-hand side of the page.


Then select 'Rich Text' (2). 2-textmodule.png


To edit the module, double click inside the module or click on the module and then select the 'Edit' icon that looks like a pencil (3). You can then add your desired text. Text changes are saved automatically.
