 6.3. I would like to give one of my students permission to update my Web pages. Can I do this?

Yes. Faculty can add editor access to their website through CI Keys. Please visit CI Keys for more info.

 6.4. I am teaching a course and I would like my students to publish portfolios of their work in their personal web space. How do I do this?

e-Portfolios are an alternative assessment strategy that can be used to supplement or replace more traditional ways of determining what students know and can do. Student e-Portfolios result when faculty require students to publish purposeful collections of examples of their work, and to annotate the examples with reflective commentary.

The easiest was for students to collect and publish their e-Portfolios is with Portfolium. Alternately, students can collect and publish their content by creating a web site in CI Keys

Information about student login is available in Section 8 of this FAQ.
