Use this guide to refresh your memory as you design your ePortfolio in Pathways.
Your librarian is available to meet with you to help you through any aspect of creating your site. Use the contact information at the right to email, chat (when the chat widget says "Talk to Jill") or schedule an appointment with her.
The Digication (the company behind our Pathways program) Student Guide is an excellent resource that will help you find answers to questions if your librarian isn't available, or if you want to see what help they have to offer. You may find the specific article you need by browsing the available titles, or you can type keywords in the Search box to find relevant articles.
There are multiple ways to create pages.
If you want to copy an existing page that already has the formatting you want
If you just want to create a new, blank page,
Most of the elements on a page can be removed or modified.
Add a Section, and then Add Content (files, images, rich text, etc.) to the section.
Your artifacts can be uploaded files or hyperlinks. The links can be embedded in text, images, or in a button that you add to the page.
Create a gallery of photos, files, or a mix of content types by clicking Edit and Add More Items to a content area on the page. Use the settings option to choose layout, set to auto-play, display items in a grid, and so on.
Optional: although you hold the copyright to your work and enjoy the protections it affords as soon as your work is in a fixed medium (your website), adding a copyright statement to your site can serve as a reminder that others must obtain your permission before using any portion of your work. You might consider applying a statement like the following:
© 2019 [Your Name]. All rights reserved.
If you would like to grant permission for others to use some portion of your work, you can apply a Creative Commons license to that portion of the work. The license informs others that they have permission to use your work in specific ways, while allowing you to retain copyright.
