What is Mahara?

Tabor offers Mahara as a digital portfolio tool for students and alumni.  An ePortfolio is a system in which students collate evidence of their lifelong learning. These can include journals, resumes, cover letters, essays/reports, artwork/images, certificates, videos etc.  e-Portfolios rely on digital media to make them engaging.  Utilising the features and functions of Mahara in interesting and creative ways will go a long way towards your audience engaging with it.

At Tabor, Mahara is also used at times as a alternative method of delivering the student's assessment.
