Getting Started

This tutorial covers the basics of setting up your Aportfolio course site and adding assignments. Watch the video

Creating a Course Template 

This tutorial shows you how to make the settings for a course-level Aportfolio template. There are multiple advantages of an Aportfolio course template. First, it creates a  consistent navigation menu for each students' Aportfolio that will assist in grading and locating student content. Secondly, students can still customize the look and feel of their Aportfolio. The template can also contain placeholders with instructions to help your students correctly add content. You can create your own Aportfolio and make it a template or contact the Aportfolio team and will make the template for you! NOTE: Before you make a course template you will need to create an Aportfolio that will become a template. Learn how to create an Aportfolio HERE

Adding and Grading Aportfolio Assignments

Creating assignments in Aportfolio allows students to submit a time and date stamped copy of their Aportfoio for grading. This ensures grading integrity and also allows their Aportfolio to become an artifact for future assessment.

The Aportfolio Lab is a self-paced Asulearn course site that includes concise instructions, video/pdf tutorials, and guidance to introduce the process of creating an Aportfolio to your students.  The lab is intended to supplement classroom presentations (Zoom) that introduce the basic functionality of Aportfolio to your students. If you have an Aportfolio course site the Aportfolio Lab will automatically appear on your student's Asulearn dashboard.  For more information about how to access  or check grades in the Aportfolio Asulearn Lab contact  us at aportfolio@appstate.edu
