There are two different options for submitting a cuPortfolio page or collection. One option is to submit through Brightspace, the other option is to submit within-cuPortfolio. The way that you submit your cuPortfolio work will depend on the option that your instructor set up for your course. Before you submit your assignment, if you do not know already, check with your instructor to see what submission method you are expected to follow.
