Hello everyone,

The next Mahara Newsletter will be published on 1 October 2021. We would like to hear from you what you are doing with Mahara.

This time it is an anniversary edition as we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Mahara project at the end of September.

Why end of September? It's when the first commit was made to the Mahara repository. Lots of work had of course happened before then as well to get to the point of the first commit. The first commit gives us a visible milestone in the project history.

Therefore, we'd love to hear from you about your journeys with portfolios using Mahara over the years. Send your text or video (link) or visualisation to [email protected].

The contribution

It will be best if your text is up to 150 words long. Ideally, this will be a summary or the first paragraph of a blog post / announcement etc. that is available elsewhere online so that a longer text can be linked. If your text is only about 150 words long and does not include a link to a longer text, that is fine as well. 

It can be a previously published text as long that is OK with the original source.

You can submit your text in a language other than English. However, it will have to be accompanied by an English summary so that those who don't speak your language can get the gist of it.

If you want to see what others have written so far, please go to the Newsletter.

The deadline

Please send your contributions to [email protected] latest by 24 September 2021.

The license

By submitting a contribution to the newsletter, you agree that the text which appears in the newsletter will be published under Creative Commons BY-SA.

The fine print

We reserve the right not to publish every submitted story in the Mahara Newsletter. We also reserve the right to use a story in a later newsletter instead of the current one. Authors will be informed about these decisions.

Furthermore, we may make minor editorial changes or correct spelling mistakes.

To establish the identity of the authors, your name can be linked to one of the following:

  • your Mahara profile page
  • your personal blog / homepage
  • your LinkedIn, Twitter etc. page

Please advice, which link should be used. If there is no preference, it will be up to the editor to decide. 

I am looking forward to receiving your submissions.

Thank you
