Our development team has been hard at work on new features and also fixing some issues that were present in New Digication to make your ePortfolio editing even better. Here's an update on features coming soon as well as improvements that are already live.
New Features Coming on April 13th
Credly Badge Module
We are pleased to announce that New Digication will soon support badging through the addition of a Credly module. You can add the Credly module to any page of your ePortfolio and then login to your Credly account to select the badges you'd like to display. Each badge can be resize and positioned on the page using the module and resize tools allowing you to display your badges alongside examples of work and reflections on your skills and experiences.
Display Files as Text Links
In addition to displaying files visually within your ePortfolio pages, you will soon have the option to display files as text links within your text modules.
Link to files such as documents, PDFs or media files. Simply select the text within your text box that you would like to become a link to a file and then click on the file icon to choose a file from your computer or previous uploads.
Hide Files from Your Library in Previous Uploads
From your New Digication Library it's easy to access files you have previously uploaded to Digication. You may find over you time that you no longer need some of the files, so we will soon provide a tool to hide files from your Library.
Improvements Available Now
Linkedin Embed Improvement
We also wanted to bring to your attention the improved option to embed a link to your Linkedin profile.
You can now allow viewers of your ePortfolio to easily view your Linkedin profile by adding a Linkedin embed to your ePortfolio page. You may wish to include this embed on your Home, Contact and/or Resume page within your ePortfolio.
The Linkedin embed will include your Linkedin profile photo, your name, current title at your company or school and the location information you have added to your Linked in profile. It will also include a link directly to your profile.
Although the design of the embed is controlled by Linkedin using their logo, font and colors (and is subject to change), you can use the move button to position the Linkedin embed on your ePortfolio page. You can also resize the module using the resize handles found on each edge and corner of the module.
