You can share a student's evidence with parents or guardians by sending a weekly email digest about shared content in their child’s portfolio. To receive a weekly email digest, parents or guardians must have an account in Brightspace Parent & Guardian. If you attempt to share content and there is no student association with parents or guardians in Brightspace Parent & Guardian, no one receives the weekly email digest.
- Parents or guardians cannot receive instant notifications from Portfolio, for example, when evidence is assessed by an instructor.
- If the evidence has already been approved, the evidence appears for parents or guardians to view in Brightspace Parent & Guardian. If the evidence has not already been approved, the weekly email digest is sent when the evidence is approved by the instructor.
To share evidence with parents or guardians
- From your course navbar, click Portfolio.
Click the Evidence tab.
- From an evidence tile, click the (...) Options menu and select Share with Parents/Guardians.
Note: You can also share work with parents when you categorize a student's work or provide feedback. From the Parent/Guardian Sharing section in the evidence details, click Shared.
