I am interested in exploring Mahara and have login demo.
Writing my profile and export to my portfolio is nice.Smile
But I would like to ask a basic question......

"Whey mahara has SNS like functions ?"

Is the "group" function basic feature for ePortfolio ?
Is it useful to make my portfolio (or cv) better quality ?

Thanks , Ebara

Hi - Mahara is a combination of e-portfolio and social networking system. Which is why it has features from both Smile

The idea is that the social networking side encourages students to get involved with the system.

Hi Nigel-san and Hasmeeta Shukla-san,

Thank you for your information.

I understand  the  importance of encouragement  to  students by SNS features.
