ePortfolio: Adding a PDF
Updated: 24 March 2021 11:44 AM
As an exhibitor, you may wish to include a PDF as part of your body of work on ePortfolio. At this time we only recommend uploading your PDF to OneDrive as that is the only way to prevent guests from downloading your PDF.
We recommend that you share your PDF file from a personal OneDrive. Please see the article OCAD U 365: Graduating Students for further instructions on how to move your student files to a personal OneDrive.
