Digication FAQs

How do I learn to use Digication?

Faculty and Staff


  • Once you're logged in to Digication, select "Create" in the upper right, then under Portfolio Settings, click Select Template.
    In the list, select the template called "Creating Your Portfolio". This template is a self-guided tour of how to create your Portfolio, and try out all its functions as you explore.

Where are Digication's files stored?

  • All files are stored virtually on Digication's servers. These files are backed-up and secure. No portfolio files are stored on Elon servers.
  • To access Digication visit: www.elon.digication.com
    • Students - use your Elon username and password (same as your email) to create an account
    • Faculty - submit your request for a Digication account to the Technology Service Desk.

How long does my Digication account last?

  • Students own their Digication accounts, just as they own their Elon log-in account. When you graduate from Elon, your account remains intact - and it's yours, indefinitely. If your portfolio is part of a project or special exhibit, your portfolio will remain online unless you remove it, or the exhibit is changed.
  • Faculty/Staff: as long as you are an employee of Elon University, you have free access to your Digication Account through your Elon log-in. If you leave Elon, you may subscribe to Digication for a nominal fee, and/or you may download the entirety of your portfolio(s).
  • You can download and save a zipped file of your portfolio at anytime.
    (Once you're logged into your portfolio, under Portfolio Tools, select "Download".)
