    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

General Questions

How do I create my Learning e-Portfolio?

For all incoming students, you will create your Learning ePortfolio during your Orientation/Registration process. 
 

What is appropriate content to put into my Learning e-Portfolio?

Your Learning ePortfolio is a space for you to reflect on your academic experience. You should aim to move beyond superficial reactions such as "I like" or "don't like" in favor of more critical and thoughtful responses. Think more about evaluating the “why” or “how”.
 
You control the content of your Learning ePortfolio, but this is a space for critical reflection. It is not an appropriate space to complain or rant about faculty, your courses, or friends/classmates.
 

Who can see my Learning e-Portfolio?

You determine who can view your Learning ePortfolio.
 

Technical Questions

How do I update or make changes to my Learning e-Portfolio?

See the step-by-step guides for more specific information.
 

What happens to my Learning e-Portfolio after I graduate?

Your Learning ePortfolio will remain active as part of O-Space after you graduate from Otis.
 

What if I want to take my Learning ePortfolio after I graduate and re-launch it in a different domain?

You can export the e-portfolio as a folder of HTML files including the original versions of any uploaded media. Go to the Portfolio Tools tab and click on the Download button. Save the zipped folder to your computer and then extract the files. Each HTML page includes the main content as well as the sidebar, header, footer and comments. Uploaded media, including the originals, are located in the files subfolder.
ePortfolio Download Option
 
 

How much space do I have on my Learning e-Portfolio?

There is no space restriction. However, uploaded media cannot be larger that 12MB. Images that are smaller are preferred since they will load much quicker.
 

How do I edit text and add pictures/graphics?

See the step-by-step guides for more specific information.
 

If my images are too large, how do I resize them?

Use an image processing program, such as Photoshop, and save the image as a JPG. The maximum file size is 12 MB, though smaller files will load much more quickly. Images that are wider than 500 px will be automatically resized when uploaded via the Image/Video/Audio module.
 

How do I add links or embed video into my Learning e-Portfolio?

See the step-by-step guides for more specific information.
 

Training and Support Questions

Are there training sessions to help me with my Learning e-Portfolio?

Support is always available in the Liberal Arts and Sciences Department, Library and SRC. When working online, go to the "Help" section within your own Learning ePortfolio.
ePortfolio Help Section
 

Where can I work on my Learning e-Portfolio?

Since your Learning Portfolio is web-based, you can access it from any networked computer. You can access O-Space from home or on any of the available computer labs at Otis in addition to the computers in the Labs, Library and SRC.
 
If you are working in the Library or SRC on your Learning ePortfolio, there will be staff on site to help you with any questions you may have.
 

Questions not covered?
