Push Brightspace ePortfolio items to others

You can push artifacts, reflections, presentations, collections, and learning objectives into other users' Brightspace ePortfolios for their own use.

Push functionality enables organizations to provide examples and template Brightspace ePortfolio items for learners. Organizations, administrators, or instructors can customize content in their own Brightspace ePortfolio and then push out the content to courses or sharing groups. This enables you to provide better support, scaffolds, and generic orientation tasks for users.

The system maintains the same item properties during a push process as it does during an export process with the following exceptions: Presentation themes, including those with modified styles, are included in a push; Tags are included in a push; Rubrics associated with an item are included in a push; Rubrics embedded in form artifacts are included in a push; and Comments are not included in a push.

You can review the status of your push processes on the Import/Export ePortfolio Content page in the Pushes to Others tab. Push processes may take some time to appear in users' portfolios depending on the size of items, number of users receiving those items, and the number of processes in the queue.
