EdTech Tool Uses:Mahara is a popular open source e-portfolio platform. It offers a high degree of flexibility to allow users to customise and design their online portfolio, as well as social networking features to allow users to interact with each other. Mahara lets users create journals, upload files, write and maintain blogs, build resumes, manage files, embed social media resources and collaborate with other users in groups. It requires a server hosting environment (usually Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). Of particular benefit, Mahara can also interoperate out-of-the-box with the Moodle VLE.
