Portfolium Instructions for Faculty

If you are having students submit multiple drafts, link ONLY the final version to Portfolium for upload.

If you experience any difficulties, you should FIRST go to the Portfolium website ( ) and after logging in (which you can do through  the “My Juniata Login” at the bottom), use the Chat box (usually in the lower right-hand corner).

This chat function is strongly encouraged by Portfolium and is where you and your students should first go when experiencing problems. Since Portfolium is a stand-alone product not housed directly at Juniata, we have very little ability to make changes on our side. This is why going through Portoflium help is usually necessary.

If you are unable to get assistance through chat, ask for someone to contact you another way and if you still can’t resolve the problem, contact Phil Dunwoody so that he can follow up with Portfolium.
