Implementing and managing Mahara (Wellington)

9am start

About the course

Eportfolios, credentialing, competency assessment and collaborating on projects can all be done under one roof: Mahara. If you want to know more about managing your Mahara instance and also supporting your organisation's learners in their learning processes, this workshop is for you. In this workshop we combine the administration side as well as the content side in one to give you an introduction to both areas.

Course outline
  • Get an overview of important factors for implementing ePortfolios successfully;
  • Review your specific requirements and map them against possibilities of ePortfolio use;
