Every student and member of staff has their own personal QMplus Hub area and this can be used to store files, create a personal journal or blog, a CV and document tasks. Placing this content onto pages in QMplus Hub enables you to share any of this information with others. You can also share text, images, videos and audio. By default, your pages are only visible to you however you can choose to share your page with other QMplus Hub users or make the pages publicly visible. QMplus Hub pages can also be submitted as assignments in a QMplus course area.

This guide will take you through creating a QMplus Hub page and adding content to it. If you want to know how to share your page after you have created it, see our guide on Sharing with others in QMplus Hub.

Creating a page

Note: All pages (apart from your profile page) created in your e-portfolio are personal to you until you choose to share them. Pages created in a group are visible to all members of the group.
