Here you can find all your binders. It can be differentiated between 2 types, which can show other features.

Besides you can create your own binder here.

If necessary, all binders can be exported either as CP, html page or pdf file.

Collected binders

These binders are based on a "portfolio 2.0 template" and are usually created by a teacher. The participants will collect the portfolio task within the course. Alternatively, it is also possible to book and collect portfolio templates which are not included in a course.

As soon as a user has collected a binder it will be listed under his/her "My portfolio binders". By opening the binder the user can work on the available task(s), add content or upload pictures, for example.

By default it is not possible to create own entries in a collected binder. But all contents of the media center can be inserted into an entry.

When selecting a part, the editor becomes active. You may now add new parts above or below by clicking on "Add part above" or "Add part below". Use the arrows on the right-hand side to move a part up or down. Click on "Delete" if you wish to delete the part.

When you are done with your entries, click "Close" - the editor is no longer active.

Self created binders 

In general, all OpenOLAT users are allowed to create their own portfolio binders with sections and entries.  


The possibility to create own binders can be restricted by your administrator.


To every entry different contents can be added.  


Citation, video and images are added to the media center and can be edited only there. Editing is only possible as long as the entry, to which the media file is linked, is not yet published


Every entry can contain of several titles and subtitles. 

With h1-h6 the heading can be selected. h1 is according to the heading 1 and is therefore the tallest one and h6 is according to heading 6 and thus the smallest one.

Text section

With the help of the html-editor a "normal" text can be added. The common formatting is possible. 
With "Insert" a math formula can be inserted as well.  


With the help of a separator a page can be divided graphically. A grey line is created, which cannot be formatted. 


Directly in the entry, as well as in the media center, a citation can be added. First the corresponding citation type needs to be chosen. Afterward as many fields as possible should be filled in.  

Video, image and document

Further on videos, images and documents can be uploaded. As soon as a title is added they can be saved and you can find them in the entry as well as in the media center. 

Select from media center 

Files, which can be found in the media center, can be added to the entry with this button. The search and filter options help to find the desired files faster. 

Further configuration

As soon as a binder is opened the following view appears: 

Not only sections and entries can be created here. Also the timeline is visible and the history can be selected here. 


All changes are listed in a chronological order in the history. The latest change is always on top.  


With the help of the timeline the user gets a graphical overview about his activities in the portfolio. The colored points show the creation date of a section. With a "Left button click" on a point you get details about the corresponding entry. The different colors show the respective status of an entry. The timeline can be helpful if a portfolio is used over a certain time period, e.g. a semester or a year.
