My Portfolio:


Welcome to the Mahara version of my e-portfolio. I am exploring the capabilities of using this system to maintain electronic portfolios as part of my research on implementation of online electronic portfolio systems.   

The Journal Entries here are just a demonstration of how you can insert blog [announcements] entries into a portfolio first page. My real blog is located here: http://blog,

Every portfolio has a purpose. My purpose for developing this portfolio is to show my skills in developing an electronic portfolio using any number of tools. After reviewing all of my artifacts (see my Portfolio at a Glance) I found five general categories of competencies: 

  • Writing & Assessment Competency (My Publications)
  • Electronic Portfolio Competency - Knowledge, Skills and Experience
  • Digital Storytelling Competency - Digital Video Editing Skills
  • TechnologyCompetency - Multimedia & Web Page Authoring Skills
  • Teaching & Instructional Design Competency - Presentations


Impressions of Mahara

I wrote a reflection in the first version of my portfolio (my first Collection). I want to use the tool more, to figure out how this tool fits my model of Interactive Portfolios. This is very interesting!

Beginning Mahara

I found this link from Allison Miller and Eportfolios Community of Practice on my Facebook account. I think it is time for me to learn Mahara! This service limits file storage to 50 MB. But I will be using my cloud storage for all on my artifacts. It will be interesting to try out this service.

I guess there is another free Mahara hosting service, Foliospaces which offers a Premium upgrade for $40/year (up to 2 GB storage).

Hi Helen,

just came across your ePortfolio MAHARA collection and I am very happy we got your excellent work also on Mahara now. I am the German Mahara Garnny - that's how the network calls me and I have always referred to your excellent work on ePortfolios. I love your TED talk about ePortfolio that needs to be social and it has helped me a lot explain  the purpose of working with ePortfolios.

I have been working with Mahara since 2006 when the European MOSEP project was piloted and I did the German pilot, working myself through the bulky wiki and figuring out how to use it for school settings ;-) .  I aslo like your !I am retired but rewired" which is my situation too, retired but still travelling in Europe on Mahara Mission ;-) . Thank you for all your precious work!
