If you’re new to all of this…
If you’re new to e-portfolios, it can be difficult to know where to start.
A good introduction is the set of Mahara Instructional videos, made available by the Hunter Institute, TAFE NSW.
If you’d rather dive straight in, Brightcookie have their own Mahara play area. You can always ask to join our Mahara sandpit.
Remember though, that our sandpit is currently on the latest version of Mahara (1.4) and so the videos by the Hunter Institute won’t match up – these appear to be for version 1.3 or earlier.
If you’ve been here before…
If you’re already on Mahara and thinking of upgrading, the differences between 1.3 and 1.4 are quite logical, but you might like to see them for yourself. You can read about the changes on the Mahara forum, or you can ask to join the Brightcookie Mahara sandpit to try it out firsthand.
