Editing Your ePortfolio On-the-Go:
How to Add Content From Your iPad and iPhone!

 

Who isn’t “on-the-go” these days? Make the most of your downtime on the train, plane or wherever your busy day takes you, to update your ePortfolio (step away from the Angry Birds, please)!

Editing on the iPad:

Step 1: Log in to ePortfolio
Step 2: Exit Safari, and go to “Settings”
Step 3: On the Menu bar click Safari and turn OFF JavaScript
Step 4: Exit Settings
Step 5: Go back to Safari
Step 6: When you are back onto ePortfolio click “edit this page”
Step 7: There will be radio buttons that allow you to click and then click an empty bar to place it in that area
Step 8: For editing, just click “Edit” or if you would like to move any section, use the arrow keys located right next to the heading of each section

While you do not have all of the editing options on the iPad that you would on a laptop or computer, these steps make it possible to upload your files to your profile page.

Uploading Images From The iPhone

Did you just snap a great photo from your iPhone that would look great on one of your pages? Waste no time in getting it up there with PortfolioUP- a free application to upload images.  Images are loaded directly from the smart phone to the “My Files” section of your ePortfolio.

Be sure to have your iPhone updated to iOS 4.3 before you download the application.

Step 1: Download “PortfolioUP” from your device’s app store: http://itunes.apple.com/app/portfolioup!/id398444044

Step 2: Go to “authentication settings” to add details like your Mahara URL, username, and password.  Click “save” (you will only need to do this one time)
Step 3: Take a photo, or choose one from the images on the phone
Step 4: Review the photo in preview
Step 5: Input image title and description
Step 6: Click upload

Step 7: Click OK
Step 8: Now acquire another image!
