Create a collection

System: ePortfolio »

A collection within ePortolio refers to a series of pages put together to present a case or narrative.

In this user guide, we'll show you how you can create a collection. We advise that you create your pages first before starting a collection.

Note: You can only submit a collection (or page) to a Wattle assignment.
