You may have been required to make an ePortfolio for a class you may feel is not relevant to your career. If you want to have a Career ePortfolio specifically for the coursework and experiences you have, you will want to make an additional ePortfolio.
Here are the instructions on creating an additional ePortfolio:
After logging in to Digication, you should be at your main home page. If not, click Home in the upper left corner.
1. Click the plus button (pictured below) to create an additional ePortfolio.

5. Title your ePortfolio using your full name.
- If you are planning on using your ePortfolio to establish your digital presence and have a common name, consider using your middle name in addition to your first and last.
- If you are creating the ePortfolio for your class, follow instructor's instructions. If there are no instructions, it's a good practice to include your full name and the course name in the ePortfolio's title.
- The title of your ePortfolio will automatically become part of your ePortfolio's web address. If you would like a different address, you can change this by clicking on edit under ePortfolio Web Address.

8. Under Permissions, click either Private Within University of Alaska or Public. ePortfolios that are Private Within University of Alaska will only be viewable by other students and faculty logged into a Digication account. Public ePortfolios can be viewed by anyone on the internet.
- If you are planning to include your ePortfolio in your resume or LinkedIn account, you must set Permissions to Public.
