Digication is the leading provider of ePortfolio and assessment management systems. Digication develops its platform with students, faculty, programs and institutions needs in mind, and enables institutions to close the loop that links student learning to institutional assessment and reporting.

#EmTechMOOC provides free access to the “New” Digication on under Open SUNY. You are welcome to use any available platform or tool to create your ePortfolio. Just a few of the many alternatives that are available to build your portfolio can be located through EmTechWIKI and searching the ePortfolio category.

Request an ePortfolio Account

There are a few different ways you can create an ePortfolio for #EmTechMOOC.

  1. If you are enrolled in #EmTechMOOC may Request a Digication Account under Open SUNY.
  2. If your institution has its own ePortfolio platform, we strongly recommend you make use of it. Not only will you develop more directly applicable skills, but you will have more direct access to the technical support provided.
  3. You may also select any potential ePortfolio platform from the numerous options that are available. Explore the ePortfolio tools in the EmTechWIKI Discover section to uncover a variety of tools suitable for creating ePortfolios.

 

Digication Tutorials

New Digication (This version is used in #EmTechMOOC)

Quick-Start Guide for the New Digication ePortfolios will provide basic information about how to get started using the New Digication.

Getting Started with New Digication video tutorials introduce many of the features you will use to create and edit your ePortfolio in New Digication.

Classic Digication (A few campuses still use the Classic version of Digication.)

Quick-Start Guide for Classic Digication will help you to get your ePortfolio up and running.

Using the Classic version of Digication is a lengthier document to help you learn more.

This collection of video tutorials describe how to use the Classic version of Digication.

 

Use the “Optional” #EmTechMOOC Digication Template 

For those who are enrolled in #EmTechMOOC, you can get a jumpstart on the ePortfolio you need to create as part of the MOOC by using the #EmTechMOOC template built into Open SUNY’s Digication. You are encouraged to customize this template in any way you’d like.

 

Publishing and Permissions

You need to Publish your ePortfolio every time you make any changes. You can select the blue “Publish Changes” button, but it is best to go to your main ePortfolio setting and select Publish Pages. If you use the #EmTechMOOC template, you will be prompted to accept the recommended permission settings the first time you publish. If you use the default Digication template, then you will need to go to the Settings menu to adjust permissions. The images below and this (2 minute) video tutorial show the process of publishing and setting permissions. The Digication Support website has additional information about publishing and how to set permissions in the New version of Digication.

Add Your Digital Badges to Your ePortfolio

If you’re using the New Digication, there’s now a Credly Badge Module to make it easier.  You can add the Credly module to any page of your ePortfolio and then log in to your Credly account to select the badges you’d like to display. Each badge can be resized and positioned on the page using the module and resize tools allowing you to display your badges alongside examples of work and reflections on your skills and experiences. There are also more general instructions on how to claim and share your Credly badges in your ePortfolio and on your social media networks.
