How to unlock your Mahara ePortfolio to allow further editing

Note. Once you submit your Mahara ePortfolio for grading, it becomes locked from further editing. Only once graded by your teacher, will the work be unlocked.

We understand that there are cases where you may want to make some changes to your Mahara ePortfolio to resubmit it, or build on an existing ePortfolio. 

There is one method where you can manually unlock your Mahara ePortfolio from your end. Steps are below.

  1. Click into the Assignment Submission area on your subject site (screenshots contain examples only).


  2. Click the Assignment link where you submitted your Mahara assessment.


  3. On the next screen, scroll down and click on the Edit submission button.


  4. Once the next screen loads, tick the 'disclaimer' box (1) and check None selected below it (2). Now scroll down and Save changes.


  5. Once the screen loads, you may see a message that Nothing was submitted (1). You can simply scroll down and click Cancel (2). Your Mahara work is now unlocked for further editing.
