Associating a Reflection to an ePortfolio Item

You can associate reflections with artifacts, collections, and presentations. If you share a reflection associated with another item, only the name of the associated item is available. If you share the associated item, users can view the reflection as part of the item. This makes it easy for users to see how your reflection is connected to the other items in your ePortfolio.
