Learn@Illinois Moodle - Connecting with Digication e-Portfolio

Digication is an e-Portfolio platform, available through the "External Tool" activity.

To add a connection to Digication to your course site:
  1. On your main course page, click the Turn Editing On button in the upper-right hand corner.

  2. Scroll down the page to find the section where you'd like to put the Digication connection, and click Add an activity or resource... at the bottom of the section.

  3. Select the "External Tool" activity, then click Add below.

  4. Fill in the "Activity name" with a name of your choice (e.g., Create your e-Portfolio).
  5. Next to "Preconfigured tool", click on the drop-down menu and select "Digication e-Portfolio".

  6. The remainder of the settings will be automatically filled in. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Save and display to verify that it is working correctly.

  7. Once the Digication portal loads, choose whether you would like to use New Digication or Classic Digication, and then scroll down and click the Define templates for students button.
  8. Here, you can decide whether students create their ePortfolios from scratch or with a template. Click Students should create ePortfolios from scratch for now (this can be changed later) and click Save & Continue at the bottom of the window.
  9. On the following screen, underneath the "Welcome to Digication!" banner, click Connect to a Course in Digication. If you have already created a course shell, you will be able to link this to your Moodle course now. If you do not have any course shells in Digication, a new course will be created for you.

Note: When your connection is added to your course site, a corresponding Digication course shell is either created or linked. The course shell holds the student roster and any portfolio-based assignments that you create using Digication. The course shell can be accessed by going to illinois.digication.com, logging in by clicking Log in in the top-right corner, and then clicking on the Courses link at the top of the page.
