The word Mahara is a Maori word meaning "to think." Mahara is an e-portfolio system developed in New Zealand that allows professors and students to store, organize, and display a variety of data. Artifacts can include word documents, pictures, videos, journals, forum posts, assignments, resumes, contact information, and more. Mahara accounts are accessible through your Moodle2 home page. Just log in to Moodle2 and find the link on the left hand side of the page in the Network Servers block next to the green hei-tiki icon. It says, Mahara @ UNC Charlotte.
*Currently users must login through Moodle. Canvas login is coming soon.
Our number one resource for students is our Mahara Tip Sheet! This is a brief set of instructions that walk students through logging in, uploading content, organizing their portfolio, and sharing it/turning it in. Please upload a copy to your Canvas or Moodle Course for students.
