For this project, you will
- upload papers and other assignments into the Artifact Library
- link the assignments in the designated sections of your eportfolio, e.g., Integrative Essay, Global Awareness, etc.
From My Portfolios, you can link on any tab at the top of the screen. Click on Artifact Library.
Choose your task by clicking on the links at the top of the screen. Most commonly, you will Add Artifact or Add Folder. You may organize your library however you wish. Your uploaded artifacts are viewable only to you and will remain in this repository on the Chalk & Wire server unless you delete them. Reminder: your access to Chalk & Wire is renewable for a fee after the UMass Dartmouth access period expires.
If you wish to upload images, use the Image Gallery.
Before you upload, you will be asked to give the file a name. IMPORTANT NOTE: The only information that will appear in your portfolio to identify your papers is the document's filename, so choose wisely.
Except for the Integrative Essay, artifacts will provide evidence of your expertise in each section. Your filenames should echo the titles that you reference as evidence in the Integrative Essay. You can rename files during or after loading into the Artifact Library.
To rename files later, find the artifact in the Artifact Library. There will be a series of buttons to the right of it - View, Delete, Rename, Move, Edit, Move. Click on the Rename icon (a small letter A) and follow the instructions.
From My Portfolios, select the CCB MBA eportfolio by clicking on the pencil to the right. In C&W, the pencil is always the editing feature.
The following sections will appear on the left menu.
- Integrative Essay: This is where you will link your integrative essay, both versions.
- Global Awareness: Links to assignments providing evidence of competency
- Ethics/Social Responsibility: Links to assignments providing evidence of competency
- Problem Solving; Rational/Analytical Thinking: Links to assignments providing evidence of competency
- Written Communication: Links to assignments providing evidence of competency
- Technology/Information Literacy: Links to assignments providing evidence of competency
- Management of a Business Enterprise: Links to assignments providing evidence of competency
- Home: Click on the pencil icon to view instructions for personalizing your homepage.
Choose a section to work on using the left menu; click on the section title.
Your portfolio includes information about your integrative essay and how to choose evidence. To access the information:
- Open the portfolio and click on a section (Global Awareness for example). Click on the pencil. Read the instructions on how to choose artifacts as evidence for Global Awareness. Hit Cancel and return to Global Awareness. Scroll down and read the Rubric for Assessment, against which you will be assessed in Global Awareness. Click on Exit to leave.

Adding artifacts to the ePortfolio
- Load assignments into the Artifact Library and rename them.

- Click OK.
- Scroll down and click OK.
- You're done. You should see the links to your artifacts on the page.After you have linked artifacts to a section, you should write an introduction and overview of the section. You should think of this as a 'work in process' as you will update it as you add artifacts.
Write an introduction and overview of what you have done in each section
- The introduction will be 1 or 2 sentences that provide your own overall assessment of your learning to date relative to the learning goal. (e.g., During the MBA program, I developed a deep understanding of ethical reasoning, particularly as it applies to business decisions and social responsibility.
- Follow the introduction, with examples to support your overall assessment. Give examples using the file names of your artifacts. (e.g., "For example, in the MGT 600 course, I completed an analysis of the Bhopal Union-Carbide disaster. The analysis is in file "Union-Carbide" below. The case clearly shows that...."
- Whenever you link new artifacts to a section, consider if you want to revise your overview to include your commentary on it.
