Hello, everyone! In this video I am going to be showing you
how to set up one of the class pages in your Weebly ePortfolio. I’m going to use my English 1010 class an
an example. I can get to that page by hovering my mouse
over Coursework and going to English 1010 or I can go to the pages menu here at the
top and click on English 1010. And I am going to put my assignment here. What we’re going to put here is whatever your
teacher asks you to put on here. I’m going to show you the basic layout for
what will go on your ePortfolio, but it may differ from class to class, but this is just
the basics. You’re teacher is going to ask you to put
a Signature Assignment on your English 1010. You may be asking what a signature assignment
is. A signature assignment is what you feel is
the best work that you did in that class while you were in the class. So, for example, my English 1010 class I may
look through my essays that I wrote and find one particular one that I felt really showcases
what I learned in that class. So, the first thing I’m going to do is I’m
going to grab at Title box and pull that down and I’m going to click on that Title box and
write the name of my essay. I’m just going to write Signature Assignment
for now, but you’re going to write the actual name of your assignment in that Title box. I’m going to center it by clicking in this
Title box and hovering my mouse over this (it’s next to the change), it’s the alignment
tool; it allows us to align our text to center. The next thing that I’m going to do, just
to make it look nice, is I’m going to grab a divider and put it under that. It separates if from the rest of the page. And, the next thing that I will grab is a
Text box and pull that down. What we’re going to do, it may seem out of
place, but it’s correct. This is right thing we are going to do. We’re going to copy and paste our essay into
this text box. There we go. The next thing that we are going to do is
we’re going to add a relevant image to your Weebly ePortfolio. We want to make this interesting, showcase
your work. So, we’re going to come up here, kind of like
what we did on the Welcome page and we can put it inside the Text box. Your text will text wrap automatically around
the image, and we can include an image that is relevant to our signature assignment. So, say, for example, my assignment was on
civility. What I could do is click on the mountain and
sun and upload an image that I downloaded from the internet that was rights-free that
allows us to connect to what we’ve learned a picture about civility or something that
we wrote about. The next thing that we’re going to do is we’re
going to grab this box right here, it’s called File. This will allow us to upload the actual file
of our assignment. This will make it possible for our teacher
to download our essay if they want to download our essay from our ePortfolio. All you have to do is click to upload your
file and click on Upload File and you can upload either the Word Document, or PDF, or
PowerPoint Presentation, whatever it may be. I would not add just the file your ePortfolio. What creates what we call here at the lab
a File Dump where people just drop their assignment from their ePortfolio and completely forget
about it. We want to showcase our work and make connections
between our learning or else our ePortfolio really doesn’t matter. The next thing we’re to do is I like to grab
another divider, separate if from the next section. Grab a Title box, pull it down, and we’re
going to write Reflection. We’ll grab a Text box and put it under our
Title box and we’re going to write our class reflection in this box. A reflection, if you’re not familiar with
that term, is your personal thoughts and feelings on the class on what your take-away from the
class it. How what you’ve learned in the class applies
to your life and how it applied to your other classes that you’ve taken or your work. A reflection is really to think about what
you learned and write about what you learned. And, this is the basic layout for how you
can put a signature assignment on your Weebly ePortfolio. If this isn’t what your teacher asked you
to put on here; maybe they want a PowerPoint or an Excel Document, or whatever it may be,
a Prezi Presentation, we have created other tutorial to help you to help you put your
assignments on your ePortfolio if you need to put something else here other than an essay. Those tutorials can be found in the Advanced
Tutorials section on the tutorials page for the Weebly Help Site, here, Weebly Help Site
on the ePortResource site. They’re here right under Video Tutorials and
Advanced Tutorials and this will show you the many ways that you can upload assignments
to your ePortfolio or fix some problems that you may be having with your ePortfolio. I hope this video has been helpful for you
and I will see you all in the next video.
