Exporting presentations to HTML

If you have the appropriate permissions, you can export presentations to HTML format directly from a presentation's context menu.

Exporting your presentation to HTML format enables you to keep a copy of your presentation in a viewable format external to the system. This is useful if you change institutions and you don't want to lose your work. Once you export your presentation to HTML, you can host it externally on your own website or save it on your computer to view offline.

Note You cannot import an HTML presentation back into ePortfolio.

Export your portfolio to HTML

  1. Click Export from the context menu of the presentation you want to export.
  2. Choose Export HTML version of presentation.
  3. If you want your HTML presentation to include links to pages in the system, select All system links. Links to pages within the system require users to log in to the system and have the appropriate permissions.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Click the link for your export file when the file packaging is complete.

    Tip If you want to navigate away from this page or close the window, you can retrieve your export package from the Import/Export area in the Recent Activity list.

  6. Save the export file to your computer or storage device.
