ePortfolio Structure

 

While many of us have interacted with a variety of online sites, we might not have created any from scratch. To help understand the hierarchical structure of ePortfolios, here are two ways to think about their structure.

 

You can think of the structure as either a book or as an outline.

 

The title of the book and cover page is the ePortfolio's title and "Welcome" or "Home" page.

 

The sections running in the top section of the ePortfolio are like book chapters. They contain all the information under that chapter which make up the larger book, or for ePortfolio: pages and modules. Keeping with the book analogy, sections are how the story is organized from a larger perspective.

In an outline, sections are the capital Roman numerals (I, II, III, IV, etc.).

 

The pages under each section running down the left side of the ePortfolio are like pages of a chapter. They contain all of the subsections and text on each page in each chapter, or for the ePortfolio they contain artifacts for each section. Keeping with the book analogy, the pages are structured in a way to tell the smaller details of the story.

In an outline, the pages are the lettered evidence of support (A, B, C, D, etc.).

 

The modules are where the story lives. It is where the creator includes artifacts: text, images, videos, graphics, and more. Keeping with the book analogy, it's the actual text on each page in each chapter, that make up the book as a whole; or here, it's what makes up the ePortfolio as a whole.

In an outline, modules are the lowercase Roman numerals with supporting evidence (i, ii, iii, iv, etc.).
