Portfolio Scanning for Dummies (S1500)

  1. 1. Portfolio Scanning
  2. 2. Basics  Make sure scanner is hooked up to the computer you are using  Scanner should immediately turn on once opened (one flap up and the other flips down)
  3. 3. Materials Preparation  Use only basic printing paper or smaller  For larger pieces use digital camera to transfer files to U drive  Remove any staples from materials to scan  Flatten pages of any creases and crinkles  Have a “Portfolio” folder created in your U drive (Only completed and scanned pieces for the portfolio should go in here)
  4. 4. Multiple Pages  Be cautious when scanning multiple pages  The scanner will register which pages have writing or images on them for you  If only a single page you can orient the page in any way  If using multiple pages, just flip the stack over.  The scanner registers from the sheet touching the scanner first and last is the furthest page out  So your rubric (Appears first) should then be at the top of the scanning pile (before flipping over) and will work forward to the last page
  5. 5. Orientation I  Hold your sheet of paper at the top, left corner (where you would normally place the staple)  Note, this is the orientation to use if only scanning a single page
  6. 6. Orientation II  Now, if scanning more than a single page, flip the stack upside down (The staple location should now be at the bottom left corner)  Note: Your rubric that was at the top of your pile is now at the bottom  Press the big blue button
  7. 7. ScanSnap  After scanning is completed a new program will open, ScanSnap
  8. 8. ScanSnap Review  Review the scanned product before saving  You can open the scanned file by double clicking the image in ScanSnap and then scroll through the scanned pages
  9. 9. ScanSnap Order  If the stack of papers was out of order, ScanSnap allows modifications to be done  On the left hand side click on the page to be moved and drag it along the bar to where you want it placed
  10. 10. Orientation III  So, the pages are in order but some are upside down  Click the rotating arrow at the top of the screen to turn the page 90 degrees at a time until the paper is as you want it
  11. 11. ScanSnap Removal  To remove an unwanted page that was scanned, right click the unwanted page on the left hand side  Click “delete page”
  12. 12. Saving I  At the top left corner, click the magnifying glass  Now click “Save As”  Remember to change your file name to the assignment type (Reflective Essay) and to choose your portfolio folder for saving
  13. 13. Great Success  You have now completed the portfolio scanning tutorial and are now one step further to graduating!!!
