Mahara Update – Coming Soon!

Over the summer we will be updating our Mahara e-portfolio system, to version 16.10!

Once the update has taken place you may notice some differences to the appearance of Mahara, as well as some new features; including group journals, the social media block, replying to comments, splitting the text box to note and text and being able to display open badges.

One of the most interesting new features, which might be useful for a few YSJ schools, is Smart Evidence. This allows you to work with competency frameworks in Mahara and associate them automatically with an evidence map for a visualisation of the competencies already gained, in progress, and not yet started.

Keep an eye on our blog for future Mahara posts, which will highlight and explain some of the new features and functions!
