Initial Status

Your website will not be visible online to anyone until after you have published it.

By default, you website contains “dummy data” and placeholder information and graphics. You will want to change all of it that you need, prior to publishing your site.

Once it is published, it will be immediately visible online, however it may take up to a few weeks for it to appear in search results.

Basic Process

The basic process of building your e-Portolio website entails first editing your content, adding any pictures, videos, and documents you need, and then finally publishing your site.

In general, every website is always a “work in process” and it’s technically never finished. But that doesn’t mean it cannot be published.

Your student e-Portfolio should be given a good effort upfront, and when you want to publish it is all up to you. Updates and changes can be made anytime, and as much as you need.
