Note: As of May 15, 2018 Mahara will only be available through a Canvas course with Mahara access enabled in the course settings.
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.
You can give your students our Mahara Tip Sheet! This document walks students through the basics of using Mahara. You can download it to print, or upload the document to your Canvas course.
Mahara accounts are accessible through Canvas courses with Mahara enabled. Once enabled, students can access it through the Mahara link in the left hand course navigation. If students do not see their account, they can login to Mahara through Canvas.
