What are Tags?

Tags are used to label and link related artefacts in your ePortfolio. Tags could reflect the type of artefact (e.g. assignments or research notes) or be used to label items relating to a particular course topic, competency, graduate attribute, subject area and so on.

Your tags display in the tag cloud on your Content and Portfolio pages. Tags vary in size based on use, with the largest indicating the most frequently used tags.

What can you Tag?

  • Content/artefacts - files, folders, plans, journal entries, notes.
  • Portfolio - pages, collections.

Adding a Tag

The process to add a tag varies a little depending on the item you are adding it to. For most artefacts you will be able to add tags at the time of creating them. For a file or folder you will upload or create it first, then edit it to add the tag.
