Student FAQ

If your professor cannot see you portfolio, it may be due to the following reasons:

1. You may not have given your professor access to your portfolio. You can do so by changing your portfolio's custom privacy settings. You can view our tutorial privacy settings tutorial here.  

2. Your portfolio pages may not be published. If you can see content in your portfolio, and your professor cannot, you may not have published all of the pages. Your can view a screenshot tutorial on publishing pages here

Submitting your portfolio is simple. We have a tutorial detailing the process here. Please note that you may have multiple assignments. Make sure that you are submitting to the correct assignment. Also, if you do have more than one assignment, you must select the assignment you wish to submit to before the submit button is clickable. 

You can use many different websites to help you make a banner. Banners must be 779 pixels wide to fit the width of your aportfolio. The maximum height for a banner is 200 pixels. For website suggestions and more details on how to design your banner please see our tutorial video or our screenshot tutorial on banners. 

You must make sure you click within the page before adding content, otherwise it is placed in your menu and appears on all pages. If content (text, pictures, video) is unintentionally visible on every page, view this tutorial.

If you are finding it difficult to view your PDF, make sure you are in published view. Follow these steps.
