It’s all about Mahara!

I have been involved in the roll out of Mahara ePortfolio software at Solent since January 2008, and then at Cranfield Defence and Security from 2015. I wanted to see if the introduction of an ePortfolio could help our students gather their reflections and examples of their best work in order to then better plan their personal development and improve their chances of graduate employment. Another strand, since arrivng at Cranfield, was to see if Mahara could facilitate group work and reflection prior to an assessment.

I continue to contribute to the community by spreading the word of Mahara and sharing our work and examples of ePortfolios as well as our experiences.
