Hi everyone. I'm trying to get together a list of institutions in the UK using Mahara. Any information would be useful, and I can follow up, but ideally it would be good to classify it

(a) in terms of level of institution: school / FEI / HEI / professional body

(b) in terms of stage of development: preliminary investigations / testing or trialling / active supported use with students.

If you like you can reply to me and I'll summarise at some point.


Many thanks

I should explain why as well -- I'd like to get as many as possible of them together so that we can share development plans and development costs.

I have been reminded that Rob Farmer started this task a while back on PDP-AND-EPORTFOLIO-UK JISCMail list, but I'm looking for any new additions, new detail, and contact details of someone in each institution willing to keep in touch.

Simon and other members, I am keen to move this idea forward and look how shared development plans and investment might be possible. My team have been investing in Mahara 1.4 (especially the usability work) but looking forward we have some other areas of interest (like LMS integration as per but are always open to more efficient ways of getting functionality to schools.

What thoughts do others have on this topic?
