ePortfolio at CUNY SPS
In general, ePortfolios are a learning tool that help students create a virtual identity and track their academic growth throughout a course or program. In their ePortfolio, SPS students reflect on their academic work, make meaningful connections across their curriculum and integrate academic learning with their professional and personal experience. Additionally, ePortfolios provide an environment to break learning barriers by creating conversations around learning that go beyond the classroom.

Accessing Digication at CUNY SPS
SPS uses the Digication platform to create and manage eportfolios. It has been incorporated as a Blackboard Tool Link (LTI) to facilitate students’ access. Faculty and students are able to enter their ePortfolio directly from their Blackboard course. Faculty who would like to integrate ePortfolio into their Blackboard course, can refer to the Digication/Blackboard page on the ePortfolio Faculty Resource Site, or see below for further support.
An ePortfolio created by an SPS student is owned by the student for life. After graduation, students may access their work directly from the Digication website: https://cunyonline.digication.com
The ePortfolio Team provides technical and administrative support for all platform users. We encourage both faculty and students to seek help both synchronous and asynchronous modalities.
- Team Email: ePortfolios@sps.cuny.edu, primary contact for all ePortfolio related inquiries.
- Resource Site: guides users with essential platform information and tutorials.
- Support Session: 1:1 virtual session to guide users with ePortfolio help.
- User Workshop: guided virtual group sessions that assist users in navigating ePortfolio.
