Setting Sections as Instructions

Instructions sections provide an area directly within an ePortfolio to share instructions, guidance and resources to aid in the building of an ePortfolio. Instruction sections are a popular feature used in creating ePortfolio templates. 

Instructions sections are only visible to those with editing access to the ePortfolio, not ePortfolio viewers, even when a page containing an instruction section is published.

Instructions sections can include text, video, audio and files and may be styled just like other sections in the ePortfolio allowing for customization based on the context of the ePortfolio.

Setting Sections as Instructions
You can set a section as Instructions by clicking the section settings button (1) and expanding the Section options (2) on the left side of your screen.


Next, you will be able to select the toggle "Turn Section into Instructions".

After a section has been set as Instructions, you will see a banner across the top of the section letting you know that this section can now only be viewable while editing.  If you no longer want the section to be set as Instructions, simply turn the toggle back to the off position.

Editing Instructions Sections
By default, Instructions sections will be locked to prevent any unintended edits. If you would like to edit an Instructions section, click the lock (1) to unlock the section.
