Associating reflections with items

Reflections can be independent ePortfolio items or associated with artifacts, learning objectives, collections, or presentations. Associating reflections with other items helps other users see the relationship between the items and makes it easier to revisit your goals and assumptions later.

Reflections are only visible to other users if you share them, associate them with an item, or add them to a collection or presentation.

  • When you share a reflection that is associated with an item, users can only view the name of the associated item unless that item is also shared with them.
  • Sharing an item associated with a reflection allows users to view the reflection as part of the item.
  • If you include a reflection in a collection or presentation, it inherits the permissions of that collection or presentation.

See Understanding cascading permissions for more information about how associations affect sharing in ePortfolio.
