How to Share a Brightspace ePortfolio Presentation with an External User

The purpose of this article is to explain how to share ePortfolio presentations in the Brightspace learning environment.

About Sharing ePortfolio Items

You can share your Brightspace ePortfolio items internally and externally.

Use permissions to share Brightspace ePortfolio items internally with other users. You can set up permissions options for each artifact, collection, reflection, presentation, and learning objective in your Brightspace ePortfolio so you can pick and choose what content you share with others.

Sharing with All External Users

You can make the presentation publicly available to anyone through a URL. When you share a presentation this way people can only view the presentation. They cannot add comments, add assessments, or make edits to the presentation.

If you make a presentation public via URL, the system includes social media icons (Twitter, Google+, and Facebook) at the top of your presentation to enable further sharing.

Step 1

On the My Items page, click on the next to the presentation (or item) you want share, and click Share.
