ePortfolios - Community Share

The Community share gives you the opportunity to share your portfolio with a group of peers.  There are two types of communities, open and restricted. In order to share in a community, you must first be a member of a community. For more information on joining communities, check out our Community Management page.

Community Types

Public Communities
An open community is one that is open for any Foliotek Presentation user to join and share portfolios.

Private Communities
Private communities are restricted, these have been set up for a specific purpose.  For instance, if you are using Foliotek Presentation as required by your school, your school has a community that is only available to other Foliotek users at your institution.  Private communities can also be created by instructors at a school for use by students in a particular course they teach.

 

Sharing ePortfolios
