Getting Started

So, you've applied for your ePortfolio and have received an email to confirm that it has been set-up. Good Start!

Your ePortfolio framework will now be sitting in the 'under development' ePortfolio directory ready for you to work on. You can jump to yours quickly using your go address:

http://go.warwick.ac.uk/ep-userid (replace 'userid' with your IT Services login name.)

Sitebuilder

You are going to need to use Warwick's own content management system - Sitebuilder which will allow you to publish content to your ePortfolio with ease. If you're not familiar with it, register for an ePortfolio Training workshop to get acquainted quickly or look through the comprehensive online technical support.
