Watch this video to learn the difference between the Dashboard, Profile page, and Portfolio page, and why it is important.
Here are descriptions about the important portfolio pages.
When you start your Portfolio page, you will have two pages (dashboard and profile pages) that already exist:
This is your landing page. There are five blocks on the left side of the screen. They are:
This is your face to the rest to the University.
These are NOT viewable by just anyone except for you, until you share it. Therefore it has a greater amount of security and should be filled with specialized content to share with specific people.
This is one of the reasons we advise students to create their course content on a Portfolio page, so that they can have granular control over who can see their materials. There are different levels of access control or sharing available; it's possible to restrict access by username, Group, or "Secret URL" with a time limit.
Always remember to think about your own personal security before releasing contact information on a publicly available page or even just for other PSU Mahara users.
