Help area for Mahara Users using Collections

  1. 1. Mahara help area for users at Forth Valley College Friday 5th July 2013 Mahara UK, Birmingham Jasmin Hodge
  2. 2. Today's Session •Rebranding of FVC’s Mahara •Introduce ePortfolio to learners at induction stage •Provide independent Learning Pathways •Use your idea to create a template •The Impact!
  3. 3. Group Activity Using the details provided, log onto: http://moodle.forthvalley.ac.uk/mahara
  4. 4. The Impact! • Mahara embedded within learning and teaching across all subject areas; • Mahara used as a tool to promote and enhance business across all services. “ePortfolios are learners own stories of what they know”
  5. 5. Working with Templates The process for setting up a template is: 1.Create a ‘page’ in your Portfolio menu>pages area that you would like to act as the template, then once your page is finished; 1.Allow copying by clicking into Portfolio menu>share and clicking on the edit access icon (KEY) for sharing options. You will tick the box to allow sharing as shown.
  6. 6. Don’t leave me behind! Something that we have spent our precious time on is worthwhile, but only if there is a purpose for doing it…... Mahara ePortfolio’s are sustainable, they can be joined to the hip of learners throughout their whole journey. Leaving College and taking their ePortfolio to Uni, or to potential employees for a post in their career they have chosen and as they continue to learn, their ePortfolio can securely keep the ‘digital diary’. Joint Activity Using the information within FVC’s help area, export your Template to take home.
