Q. How do I create and edit a portfolio I created in Blackboard?


To create a portfolio:

Here is a great, step-by-step instructional video on how to create and build a portfolio in Blackboard: Creating Portfolios in Blackboard.

  • First you will populate the My Artifacts with the necessary documents.
  • Then you build the profile by adding those artifacts (documents).

There will also be a number of similar videos to the right of video, but if please let us know if you have any questions that come up during the process.

To edit a portfolio:

  • First, for this example, make sure you have a Word file saved to your Desktop.
  • If you have already created a portfolio, you can easily edit it by going to the My Files tab. Under Jump to... click on My Porfolios.  Hover over your portfolio name and a drop-down arrow will appear.  Click on it and select Edit. 
  • Next, click on Build the Portfolio.
  • Click on Create New Artifact. 
  • A new box will open.  Type the Word document's file name in the Name box.  Then scroll to the bottom and under the message box, it will say Attach File: click Browse My Computer and find the file on your Desktop.  Click Submit.
  • If you want your portfolio to have additional tabs, again under Build the Portfolio click on Create Page near the top.
  • Give the new page a name, then follow the steps above to add a Word document under that tab.
  • Click Submit

Blackboard's portfolios are equipped to handle numerous pages/tabs, each with as many artifacts per page as you would like.

To complete your portfolio click Submit (it's quicker than clicking Save & Continue)

Then click on View Portfolio to see the changes.
