Name your page “Affinity Designer Tutorials”.
Export (as PNG) your favourite five Affinity Designer tutorial files. Be sure they are exported with transparency turned on (with no background) and are 1024 pixels on the longest side.
Upload the pictures to your ePortfolio.
Under each picture put “Tutorial: URL”, where URL is the bit.ly shortened version of the URL.
For each video, include a short paragraph explaining why you enjoyed this tutorial and what skills you learned from it.
Ensure the page is aesthetically pleasing.
I just discovered this great little (portable) screen recorder utility that saves the video file as a GIF file, which is perfect for embedding in websites or ePortfolios.
