Mahara 1.9 making learning easier

The release of version 1.9 of Mahara, the open source ePortfolio platform, was made possible through the contributions of Catalyst Open Source Academy graduates, summer interns and Catalyst clients.

Four students who participated in the Catalyst Open Source Academy in 2013 and 2014 contributed code to the release, as did two former summer interns. These contributions were part of a much wider effort, with 25 other people from all over the globe contributing, alongside eight Catalyst employees.

A number of Catalyst clients made this release of the collaboration and social networking system possible by either sponsoring new features or having bugs fixed. We would particularly like to thank:

for contributing to the core project and thus enabling Mahara users worldwide to benefit from the enhancements that are now part of the platform.

Developers from two of Catalyst's clients, Deltak Innovation and University of the Arts London, also contributed feature and bug fixes directly to the project.

You can find out more about Mahara 1.9 in the release announcement from 15 April 2014. If you want to learn more about Mahara, book a training session or have your own Mahara site set up, please get in touch with us at mahara@catalyst.net.nz.
