Using Mahara, students and staff create their personal learning stories by uploading evidence of activities they have participated in, and embedding publicly accessible content they have previously put online. They can write reflections on their experiences that frame this evidence, map it to competencies or registration requirements, and provide necessary context.
Mahara can be used for many different portfolio purposes, such as study, professional development, work-integrated learning, assessment, showcase and presentation, and employability.
Mahara makes it easy to comment and give feedback. Portfolios can also be submitted to learning management systems via LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) for marking.
Groups in Mahara allow people to create portfolios collaboratively and engage in forum discussions.
In our podcast 'Create. Share. Engage.' portfolio practitioners, researchers, learning designers, and portfolio authors share their journey. Learn how they navigate the many different facets of portfolios in general, and Mahara specifically.
