Step #8 - IMPORTANT

In the [Submissions History] area, identify the ePortfolio submission by the file extension .d2lresource

  1. Check whether the file is over 1 Kilobyte.  If the file is LESS THAN 1000 Bytes, the Presentation has not attached properly.
  2. Check whether YOU can view the Presentation, by clicking on the .d2lresource file link.  Once the link is clicked, a new window will open, if your Presentation DOES NOT appear and the new window displays a blank white page, the Presentation has not attached properly.

If your Presentation DID NOT attach properly, please try to submit your Presentation again, using the steps above.  Be sure to use FireFox or Chrome as your browser.  You may also want to try uploading using a high speed, wired ethernet connection after 8pm in the evening when internet traffic is not as high.
