The DartWrite Portfolio project provides WordPress-based portfolio websites to all Dartmouth students. Supported by a grant from the Davis Educational Foundation, DartWrite fosters portfolio use across Dartmouth, supporting faculty and students in implementing portfolios inside and outside the classroom and driving research and assessment initiatives focused on understanding students' growth over time.
We have developed a support system for students and faculty who need help with their digital portfolios. If nothing below fits your needs, contact us to make a special request.
DartWrite How-To videos:
We've posted videos introducing students to basic editing concepts and functions on this site. You can find those videos (along with written transcripts) here: DartWrite How-To Videos.
Our video topics are limited to the basics. Try the Campus Press User Guides for answers to more questions.

Support for Students at RWIT
Students may schedule an appointment with an RWIT tutor for help with a number of subjects including: themes and customization, editing and designing pages and posts, privacy settings, and developing new ideas or content.
Class Visits, upon Faculty Request
Faculty can request a class visit from the DartWrite staff. Most visits include a brief introduction to the portfolio project and a hands-on workshop walking students through key editing functions in the WordPress platform. To request a visit or other support - a consultation about a syllabus or assignment, content for a Canvas page, etc - faculty can email us at DartWrite@Dartmouth.edu with their needs.
