Log in to Digication
Go to http://stjohns.digication.com,
fill in the username and password, and click on ‘Sign In’. (same as
your St. John’s Central Login.)
Create Your e-Portfolio
Once logged in, you will come to your Dashboard, a
page that lists everything you have on Digication – a Calendar,
e-Portfolios, Courses, and Communities. To create a new
e-Portfolio, under ‘My e-Portfolios’ click the ‘Create’
button. Choose an e-Portfolio Title and Web Address.
Remember, that web address can only contain letters and numbers.
The other options allow you to customize information about your
e-Portfolio. Remember, you can always come back and edit these
fields by clicking the ‘Portfolio Settings’ tab. When you’re ready,
click the ‘Submit’ button.
Edit Your e-Portfolio
Let’s get familiar with the structure of the
e-Portfolio editing page. When you are logged in and view your
ePortfolio, you first see it in Edit Mode. The tabs along the top
of the page let you switch viewing modes. The ‘Preview’ tab lets
you preview your changes as you are editing. The ‘Published’ tab
shows you the published version of your e-Portfolio – what your
ePortfolio visitors see.
Organize Your ePortfolio Using
Sections and Pages
What sections would you like to add to best
represent the topics of your e-Portfolio? Then within each section,
what pages will be needed to best categorize your content? These
sections and pages can be modified later if needed. You just need
an initial structure to get you started. Also, keep in mind that
you can create more than one e-Portfolio with your account so you
do not need to fit all your projects or content into one
Add Sections & Pages
In the ‘View Sections’ area, click on the
‘Add/Edit’ tab. To add sections, click on the ‘Add Section’ button
on the right side. Type in the section name and then hit the ‘Save’
button. To reorder sections, make sure you are in the ‘Add/Edit’
tab, simply drag and drop the sections. To add pages, click on
‘Add/Edit’ tab next to ‘View Pages’ area. The rest of the process
is identical to adding sections.
