University Honors students who entered the program between fall 2008 and winter 2012 were required to maintain an e-portfolio using Nuventive iWebfolio. This platform provides a secure and efficient means for students to build web-based learning portfolios. These students can continue to use iWebfolio to maintain and further develop their portfolios. However, these students can also now choose to use alternate platforms continue to maintain and further develop their learning portfolios.
The FAQs below are provided for students who are continuing to use iWebfolio as their portfolio platform.
Your account is 500 MB in size. Should you need additional storage size, contact the Nuventive Support line (firstname.lastname@example.org), Monday thru Friday from 8:30 AM to 5 PM EST.
First-year students are required to purchase a five-year account, which costs $100. After students graduate from UC, they may continue their account at an additional cost determined by iWebfolio or export the e-portfolio to a compressed zip file before the account expires.
By default, the University Honors Program staff has reviewer access to all e-portfolios using the University Honors e-portfolio template. Should any of those reviewers be removed, it is the account owner's responsibility to add them back on as a reviewer.
In general, Honors faculty do not have access to student accounts. It is up to the e-portfolio owner to decide whether to grant review access to the e-portfolio. Refer to the Account Owner Guide to learn more about establishing custom reviewers.
Yes. Just keep in mind how much account storage is available. You can build multiple e-portfolios with existing pages (items).
Your e-portfolio should include a brief introduction of yourself and a current resume of your experiences. The second part is documentation and reflection on all honors experiences and honors English courses (download the e-portfolio documentation guide). Finally, you should include a writing sample of your best work in any course every quarter.
Generally, an e-portfolio page (or item) should be created within 4 weeks after the completion of an honors experience. Optimally, it would be best to maintain your e-portfolio on a quarterly basis so that the experience is still memorable and relevant. You should use the e-portfolio documentation guide to document your experience.
No. Changes to the template are directed towards structural content. For the most part, changes to the Honors e-portfolio template should not delete pages you have edited and/or added content. If a page or category is deleted on the primary template, the page with owner content will remain.
The general way to document an honors experience is to describe what you did in the experience and posting two artifacts of your work. More information can be found in the e-portfolio documentation guide.
You should use your e-portfolio to build and submit your proposal for a self-designed honors experience. Access the page to view the instructions and process.
Make sure you have the image uploaded to your My Files folder (refer to the Owner Guide for details). You can insert an image in a page (or item) and a category.
Open the page or category you wish to edit. In edit mode, select the area you wish to insert your image. Click the insert image icon in the edit bar. Then click "browse server" to select the image you want in the My Files folder.
Once you selected your image, it is important to select the alignment and size of the image. You can also create a border around the image and space between the image and text.
Here's a short screencast on how to insert an image.
If you've created a PowerPoint presentation and would prefer to embed it into one of your pages rather than attach it as a file, you can use Google Docs to publish your presentation and generate an embed code. Read the instructions on the Google Docs site. You can also embed a Prezi in your e-portfolio; read the instructions on the Prezi site.
Remember that once you generate the embed code, you need to copy and paste it into the HTML source code in your page.
Make sure you have the document uploaded to your My Files folder (refer to the Owner Guide for details). To hyperlink a document, select the desired text and click the hyperlink button in the edit bar. Then click "browse server" to select the document.
Locking your e-portfolio is the system's way for your to submit your e-portfolio for review. To lock your e-portfolio, select the portfolio and in edit mode do the following:
While the e-portfolio is locked, you can open and view the e-portfolio but you cannot edit and/or add items. Your e-portfolio will be unlocked when the Reviewer releases control back to you. If the Reviewer does not release control after 30 days, control of your e-portfolio automatically is returned to you.
One thing to note is that locking your e-portfolio does not necessarily mean that you are locked out of your account. You are still able to create additional e-portfolios as long as your account size allows for additional e-portfolios.
