ePortfolios FAQs

Does Otis have an e-portfolio system?

Yes! It is attached to our learning management system, O-Space. Your portfolios will appear under the My ePortfolios gray header on your Home screen.
 
 

I'm and alumnus/a and I am having trouble logging in. What do I do?

Please use the O-Space Login Page for Alumni and enter your Xnumber and PIN. If you need help with these credentials, please contact the Alumni Office. If you have any questions about O-Space or e-Portfolios, please contact Heather Cleary at (310) 665-6926.
 
 

When I created my e-Portfolio, why does it ask me for a URL? What do I name it?

Each portfolio has its own unique URL, which you can send out to friends, family, or even potential employers. You may choose your own URL. If the URL is already taken, the site will prompt you for another. We recommend that you use your otis email address, e.g. jdoe, for the portfolio you will send to potential employers.
 
 

Who can see my e-Portfolio?

There are three levels of access to your e-portfolio, which you can set under the "ePortfolio Settings."

  • PUBLIC - Show in Directory: Your e-portfolio will be listed in the "ePortfolio Directory." Anyone who visits the site may view your portfolio.
  • PRIVATE - Don't Show in Directory: Your e-portfolio will not be listed in the "ePortfolio Directory." Anyone who knows its URL though may view it.
  • PRIVATE - Admin Only: Only the owner and editors of the portfolio may view it. The URL is only available when one is logged into the system.

 

 

How can I access e-Portfolios?

Users can "subscribe" to topics in courses and communities as well as to ePortfolios. Once a user has "subscribed", they will be automatically emailed every time new content is added to that topic, that topic is modified, or new replies to the topic are posted.

  • To SUBSCRIBE simply click on the Subscribe link.
  • To UNSUBSCRIBE click on the Unscribe link.

To manage all of your subscriptions, click on the Subscriptions link in the top menu.

 

 

How can I view other e-Portfolios created by others in my program?

You can search by department and program as well as by community type, e.g. student, faculty, etc. In the e-Portfolio Directory, click on the "By Category" tab. Click on a link; any spots that you have permission to view will appear. These categories are manually assigned by O-Space administrators. You can help us out by adding the appropriate categor(ies). Also, if you know a person's name, you can search for it using the "By Person" tab in the ePortfolio Directory. 

 

 

I want to create an e-Portfolio for a group project. How do I allow other people to edit it?

You may allow other people to edit and change your ePortfolio. These people could be your professor, TA, or other members of your class. To add them, go to Edit ePortfolio Settings and click on the Security bar. Click on More Options; a new section, titled Chose Who Can View or Edit Your ePortfolio, will appear. On the left side, search by first or last name; the results will appear below. Click on the Add link to the right of the name. The name will now appear on the right side. There are 4 types of access you can grant:
  • VIEWER: Person may view your ePortfolio, whether or not it is publicly available or listed in the Directory.
  • EDITOR: In addition to Viewer privileges, person may make changes to the content of the ePortfolio. Any changes will not go live until a person with Admin or Publisher access publishes the content.
  • PUBLISHER: In addition to Editor privileges, person may make changes to the layout of the ePortfolio. In addition, the person can publish any pages in draft form.
  • ADMIN: In addition to Publisher privileges, person may change the e-Portfolio settings (including granting access privileges) as well as delete the ePortfolio.

 

 

Where can I see other people's e-portfolios?

Go to the e-Portfolios Directory. You can search by person, department, and type.
 
 

Why don't My videos show up in the e-Portfolio?

Your video has been uploaded. The problem has to do with browser security permissions. The video content is seen as mixed http:// vs https://. In Internet Explorer + Safari + Firefox + Chrome you will see a shield on the browser tool bar (see screenshots below for examples). Select the shield to enable content.
