Teaching Commons > Teaching Guides > Technology > Digication > Creating an ePortfolio Template
To provide students with a basic structure or some starting content for their ePortfolio, a template ePortfolio can be created and shared with the entire course.
Note: A template can be created based on an existing self-owned ePortfolio, or as a new ePortfolio. To create a template based on an existing ePortfolio, go to the
Share a Portfolio with the Class as a Template.
Note: The template can include structural and aesthetic settings and/or content items for students to begin with. If content items are being included, make sure to publish all pages when finished by selecting the
three bars for the menu at the top, then selecting
Publish Pages and checking the box for
All pages. If this step is not done, not all content will be included in the shared template.
Once an ePortfolio has been created, it can be shared with a class so students can use it as a template.
To make changes to a template, the original ePortfolio will need to be edited. Follow all of the steps to re-share the ePortfolio as a template, then use the steps below to remove the old version from the template library.
