There are three different privacy settings. Changing the privacy settings for one of your ePortfolios will not affect the privacy settings of any other ePortfolios you have created.  

Public ePortfolios can be found by performing an internet search. If you want to put the link to your ePortfolio on your resume, or LinkedIn account, or even be featured as a model ePortfolio (and subsequently be eligible for student showcases), you must change your ePortfolio settings to 'Public'. However, it is prudent to be mindful of any sensitive information you have posted on your ePortfolio, e.g., phone numbers or home addresses.  

To Change Your Permission Settings

  1. Log in to and click on your ePortfolio.
  2. In the upper right hand corner, click "Portfolio Tools" and select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.
  3. Scroll down to "Permissions" and select either "Private within Stony Brook University" or "Public".
    1. Portfolios that are 'Private Within Stony Brook University' will only be viewable by other students and faculty logged into a Digication account. 'Public' ePortfolios can be viewed by anyone. If your ePortfolios is "Private to me" then it can NOT be seen by your instructor or graded. 
  4. Scroll down to the bottom left of the page and click Save.
