Blackboard: Portfolio Assignment – Submitting Your Portfolio

Portfolio Assignment

A Blackboard Portfolio assignment is a structured way of submitting your Portfolio to your marker.  It requires you to submit a specific portfolio template, attached to the assignment.

Submit To The Portfolio Submission

In the Assessment area, select the correct Blackboard Portfolio Assignment submission point.

When you are in the Portfolio Upload Screen, there are two options to attach the portfolio.

  1. Select Portfolio – Select your already created portfolio.  This is the best option for longer term portfolio work, as you will have worked on this for months or years before the submission date. When you Select Portfolio, you will have to choose from a list of your existing Portfolios. A clearly labelled portfolio will allow you to attach the correct one.
