Students are expected to maintain the same academic ethics in their ePortfolios that they are in their courses.
The content (pictures, assignments, etc.) that you include in your ePortfolio must be content that you have produced. Plagiarism in not acceptable. Plagiarism is when you represent work that you have not produced as your own.
