Digication has created a new notification that informs users that a system-wide template ePortfolio or a course ePortfolio template cannot be edited or deleted. This is intended to prevent any inadvertent deletions or modifications of existing template ePortfolios.
To ensure that a template ePortfolio is not modified and to view the relevant notification, please, follow the steps below:
For Course Templates:
In the Courses option of your dashboard, select the course you want to offer as a template. In the chosen course window, select the ePortfolios tab and then click the Manage Access button. You will be immediately redirected to a new window where you can view the Template menu for your course. Select the Yes option from the Template menu, thus agreeing to offer your course as a template to your students. Save your work by clicking on the Save button.
A new window will open in which you can view your template ePortfolio. Click on the newly created template ePortfolio and you can view in the new window the notification that announces that the template ePortfolio cannot be modified.
For System-wide template ePortfolios:
Start by selecting the ePortfolios option from the drop down menu found in the Administration view on the left hand side. A new drop down menu will open up under the ePortfolio option. Click on the Templates category and enter the customized URL of the desired course ePortfolio in the Add a Template box.
Click the Add button. The newly created Template ePortfolio can be now viewed in the Templates section of the ePortfolios menu.
Once the system-wide Course ePortfolio Template is created it may not be edited and becomes a template option for new ePortfolios under the Choose a Template category in Create an ePortfolio view.
We hope these updates will increase your satisfaction with our platform!
