Build togehter a portfolio
04 August 2009, 9:28 AM
Actually we develop a special eLearning scenario for bachelor students in a large lecture. So in winter term 50 students will use Mahara for different tasks. I'm curious about it
For the design of the eLearning scenario we have an important question: It´s is possible to build a portfolio together in a group? Actually students only can build their own portfolio. Furthermore they can´t share the same folder. It´s only possible to upload a file in your own but not in a common folder?
So... ist there a solution to share und build common resources in Mahara? Maybe we need a plug-in?
Greetings from Germany
For your information: We use Mahara 1.1.4

About your questions:
The Group offer nearly all fetures to create a group portfolio. The only missing thing is a group blog feature.
Feel free to post in the "Deutschsprachiges Mahara" group or send me mail for detailed questions.
Do you know about the eWIEsion.com/wiki? german speaking tutorials for the actual and older versions ofMahara.

You can build portfolios using the Groups - create a group, upload files into it and create group views
As Heinz says, blogs are missing currently, and you can't copy your files to a group or use them in a group view yet, but if you know you're going to need to create a portfolio in a group then this isn't too much trouble.

Thanks for your fast respond. I had a telefone call with Heinz. We figured out that I have an old Mahara Version: 1.0.4 Sorry for molesting you with such stupid things :-(
I discussed the blog-function with Heinz. Maybe it is intersting for us ... I will check it when we installed the current version of Mahara and finished our didactial design.
