Need to make a brand new e-portfolio?
Please see the complete guide from the department here.
Just need to convert to the new theme?
If you are a current MIS major using the old theme on Community, use the instructions below to migrate your e-portfolio to the new template. This will allow you to use all the new capabilities. It is no longer possible to request PRO points using the old template/theme. The old template/theme will also be removed shortly.
- Go to http://community.mis.temple.
edu/ and login using your Temple AccessNet id and password. If the password does not work, please visit http://accounts.temple.edu.
- Make sure your e-portfolio is connected to your profile.
- Hover on Hello, … (on the top right) and hover on Profile, and then click Edit to access your community profile.
