Adding Documents to an ePortfolio

Nearly any type of document can be uploaded to an ePortfolio, provided that it is 50 megabytes or below in size. The most common way of adding documents to an ePortfolio is via the rich text module where the files can be embedded and their link text customized. Instructions on how to do just that are listed below.

Embedding Documents within Rich Text Modules

Navigate to, or add a rich text module in the page or section where you want your document to appear

Click on the "Edit" button

Place your cursor where you'd like embed your document in line

You can also create custom text that will act as a link for the document

Simply type a word or phrase you'd like to act as the hyperlink and select it before continuing to the next step.

Click on the "Insert File" button

Click on "Choose File" in the pop-up window

Navigate to and select your document

Double-click on the file or select the file and click "Open" to begin uploading

Click the "Insert" button to place the link within the module

Save and Publish

After you've successfully added the link to your document within the rich text module, all that's left is to save your work and publish it!
