To help students and faculty get a better feel for the layout options as well as media elements that can be included in a Blackboard Portfolio we at NIU created the following sample Blackboard Portfolios to demonstrate the layout and organizational options available, sharing here for any others that might find them helpful:
Sample Layout 1 (Left Vertical Navigation) - http://facdev.niu.edu/bbportlayout1
Sample Layout 2 (Right Vertical Navigation) - http://facdev.niu.edu/bbportlayout2
Sample Layout 3 (Right Navigation Box) - http://facdev.niu.edu/bbportlayout3
Sample Layout 4 (Horizontal Navigation) - http://facdev.niu.edu/bbportlayout4
NIU is also developing a comprehensive set of documentation, guides, and tutorials for faculty and students in their use of the Blackboard Portfolio tool. Visit http://www.niu.edu/blackboard/students/portfolios (for students) or http://www.niu.edu/blackboard/assess/portfolios.shtml (for faculty) to see currently available Bb Portfolio resources and check back again later in August…more to come!
