Mahara hosting is a perfect addition to Remote-Learner's Moodle and ELIS hosting services.
What is Mahara?
Mahara is an open source e-portfolio system with a flexible display framework, being adopted in both academic and workplace environments.
Mahara, meaning 'think' or 'thought' in Te Reo Māori, is a user-centered platform having a permissions framework that enables different views of an e-portfolio to be easily managed.
Mahara is fully integrated with Moodle through a secure single-sign-on (SSO) web service connection. Mahara is ideal for students at any level in their educational career, helping them to maintain learning mastery artifacts as they advance through the system. Mahara is also ideal for the corporate/governmental environment to help staff show workplace competency during a review period.
Mahara features include:
- Secure portfolio home directory
- Resume builder
- Social networking system that allows users to create learner communities
Mahara hosting is a stand-alone service, and requires an additional hosting contract. Mahara hosting includes enough storage space and resources to support 100 - 20,000 users with a generous home directory. Virtual machine resources can be added to the cluster as learner demand grows.
