Click your name in the top right corner, then select Settings. Select Password to change your password. Use the back button below the Via logo in the upper left to return to the home page.
PRIVACY + SHARING
- Who can see my work that I submit for an assignment in Via?
When you upload work for a course assignment, only the instructor of that course will be able to see your work. Otherwise, your work is completely private until you add it to a showcase ePortfolio and share that ePortfolio.
- Who can see my work that I upload to my Timeline in Via?
No one can see the work you upload to your Timeline until you add it to a showcase ePortfolio and share that ePortfolio.
- How do I share a showcase ePortfolio?
When you create a showcase ePortfolio, go to the Share tab to make it Public. Via will generate a unique URL for your ePortfolio, which you can copy and paste or share directly through Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.
