Create Artefacts

Home » CloudDeakin Guides » My Items » Create Artefacts
You may upload or create artefacts on any number of topics and at any stage of completion. An artefact may be a document, graphic, audio file, video file, presentation, or other form of digital media. You may upload files from a personal computer or storage device, import items from a unit, link to a website, create artefacts in Portfolio (reflections, presentations), or fill out a form.

Upload a file

Upload files from your computer, personal storage device, or Locker.

  1. Click the Add button on the My Items page and then click File Upload from the drop-down menu.
  2. Drag files over an upload target (contain the text “Drop files here, or click below”) then click Add. If this functionality is not available in your browser,
    • Click Upload to locate the file that you want to upload.
    • Click Open.
    • Then, click Add.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Give the file a Name and Description.
  5. Add any Tags you want the artefact to have.
  6. Click Save.

Tip: Consider compressing large media files before you upload them to save space in your portfolio. Full resolution files are not usually necessary for display on the web.

Tag

Tags are words you associate with an object to make items easier to find. You can search for items with specific tags, and other users can use your tags to search for items.

To make a multiple-word tag, place double quotes around the entire phrase. For example: typing “winter project” makes the two words a single tag.

To make a private tag that only you can see, type the @ symbol in front of the tag. For example: typing @draft adds a private @draft tag to an item that other users will not see when you share the item with them.

To make a private multiple-word tag, put the @ symbol before the quotation marks, for example: @”rough draft”.

Tip: You might want to compress large media files before uploading them to save space in your portfolio. Full resolution files are not usually necessary for presentation on the web.

Create a HTML file

Portfolio provides the option to create HTML artefacts using a simple HTML Editor. HTML files may contain formatted text, images, videos, audio files, and links to content in Learning Environment.

  1. Click the Add button on the My Items page and then click Web Document from the drop-down menu.
  2. Enter a File name you want the file to be stored as.
  3. Use the HTML Editor to add your Content.
    Note:
    If you wish to link to YouTube video or Flickr, use the Insert Stuff icon.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Enter the Name you want to display for the file and a Description.
  6. Add any Tags you want the artefact to have.
  7. Click Save.

If you want to include an existing website as an artefact in your portfolio, you can reference the address (URL) for the site rather than uploading files.

  1. Click the Add button on the My Items page and then click Link from the drop-down menu.
  2. Enter the Name you want the URL to be stored as.
  3. Enter the URL (web address).
  4. Enter a Description of the site or its significance.
  5. Add any Tags you want the artefact to have.
  6. Click Save.

Import unit content as an artefact

A great way to track your progress over time is to include your unit work in your portfolio. You may then review your work at any point in the future and compare it to other assignments and units.

  1. Click the Add button on the My Items page and then click Sites results from the drop-down menu.
  2. You can use the Search function to search for your site.
  3. Click the Site Name you want to import results from.
  4. Select the items you want to import, and click Next.
  5. Enter a Name and Description for each item.
  6. Add any Tags you want the artefacts to have word tag, put the at symbol before the quotation marks, for example: @”rough draft”.
  7. Click Save.

Fill out a form

Forms are templates created by your Faculty, School or Unit Chairs collecting information using a set of question fields.

  1. Click on Add button on the My Items page and then click Form Response from the drop-down menu.
  2. Click the name of the form you want to fill out.
  3. Fill out the form.
  4. In the Fill Out a Form page, provide a Name and Description unique to this form entry.
  5. Click Save.

Record Audio

You can record audio directly within Portfolio, rather than pre-recording audio on your computer and uploading it as a file.

  1. Click the Add button on the My Items page and then click Audio Recording from the drop-down menu.
  2. Ensure your microphone is set up correctly and click Record. You can also:
    • Click Flash Settings to make adjustments to your microphone selection and volume.
    • Click Play to listen to your recording.
    • Click Clear to erase your recording.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Give the file a Name and Description.
  5. Add any Tags you want the artefact to have.
