Portfolio Scanning for Dummies (S510)

  1. 1. Portfolio Scanning
  2. 2. Basics  Make sure scanner is hooked up to the computer you are using  Make sure the scanner is on (smaller, white button if not)
  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 from last to first, so your rubric (Appears first) should then be at the bottom of the scanning pile 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 not the orientation to use while scanning
  6. 6. Orientation II  Now, turn the sheet 180 degrees in either direction (The staple location should now be at the bottom right corner)  You are now done with the actual scanner
  7. 7. Orientation III  Keep in mind that if scanning is complete and the orientation is incorrect certain computers will allow for future alterations and readjustments  Your computer will need to have either ScanSnap or Adobe Acrobat (NOT Adobe Reader) to make orientation changes  Refer to the ScanSnap for Dummies PowerPoint for assistance
  8. 8. Saving I  After pressing the green “SCAN” button a pop up window will show up
  9. 9. Saving II  Click “Scan2Folder” and a new menu will pop up  First, check to make sure you oriented your scanned piece right side up  Second, under “Specify File Name”, title your scanned piece according to whichever expectation it will reside (Narrative Account, Group Collaboration, Community Service, Etc.)  Next, under “Specify Destination Folder” choose “Browse” and save to your Portfolio specific folder  Last, click “Save”
  10. 10. Great Success  You have now completed the portfolio scanning tutorial and are now one step further to graduating!!!
