Mahara help

Mahara is an ePortfolio system. All York St John staff and students automatically have a Mahara account where multi-media pages can be created. Pages can contain text, images, PDF, files, embedded videos and other content. Mahara offers optional built in content types to help structure records for areas such as Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Pages are private unless shared or submitted to tutors.

Mahara can be accessed through the services menu of Moodle or directly at
