We are thinking about implementing Mahara for our public school district. Teachers would like to see some public views of "actual student portfolios". Does anyone have URLs for examples?

here is a view which is public:

There's also a few highlighted on the homepage here - an area we want to build upon. Could we use your example Heinz?

about your question to make the portfolio i posted to Sharon public in te hbestpractice intro i am glad to give you a positive answer.
The guys give me the ok to publish it and here is another view which seems to be interesting because it uses a lot of linked views.
Please send me a notification if you publish the links to these views.

Thank you so much - that gives me something to show (and luckily I can read some German - having lived there for 10 years).

here comes another good example how to use mahara:
the user has inserted a lot of links to show more "pages" of his portfolio. Feel free to show it to interested people.

Very nicely done - I had not even thought about linking Views together.
Thank you again.
18 January 2009, 8:48 AMWe will be using Mahara via Moodle with a group of students and I was wondering - public view - is that public to the whole world in all situations? In other words, might there not be a risk of students creating a public view with unsuitable (innocently or otherwise) information? And if so will I have a moderation issue here? I am not saying they will but I'd like to investigate this possibility further.

public means public in WWW.The view is visible by every person in the in web. I think it's important to show the pupils this feature and to discuss with them the dangers.
You may use the secret URL feature in Mahara 1.1 to post a view to people not logged in;
here the attached online help:
If you don't want everyone to be able to see your View, but you would like to show it to a few people who are not registered on this site, then you can make your View visible to the public through a special link which is difficult to guess. You can let your friends know about your View by pasting the link into an email.
18 January 2009, 10:02 AMVielen Dank Heinz. This is as I thought - public IS public so they will have to be educated as such. I didn't know about the secret url and this will be very useful to me
