Mahara is customisable and flexible. It is the perfect personal learning environment mixed with social networking, allowing you to collect, reflect on and share your achievements and development online in a space you control.

Open source

Mahara is built on open source and open principles. It interoperates out of the box with the learning management system Moodle.

Mahara is free and is being improved by enthusiastic people around the world.


The Mahara community is vibrant and its users meet up at user events and conferences, give presentations, write articles and also publish books. Feel free to browse the presentations to get a feel for how Mahara is used in different educational contexts or meet other users at one or more of the events organised throughout the year.
