    • Who is doing what in the Australian Higher Ed sector with Mahara?
    • Which Universities are using/piloting Mahara?
    • A short questionnaire of some Mahara Universities
    • Q: How are you using Mahara to support teaching and learning?
    • “used extensively in a professional placement program”“students in health faculty on placement using Mahara to document and reflect on their experiences”
    • “reflective journal of tasks and experiences over the course of their internship”“Students … shared with the course convenor & workplace supervisor”
    • Q: Has it helped enrich the learning experience?
    • “has proven an excellent tool for collecting evidence of learning, showcasing learning, critically reflective learning”
    • “there is a leap to be taken by staff in understanding it as a student centered tool”
    • “able to reflect on and collect digital assets in a way that was not previously possible”
    • “students appreciated the flexibility of accessing work from any location, but found the system limited the presentation of their work”
    • “Mahara gives the students an opportunity to work and think outside the course boundaries which affords a more holistic approach to their learning”
    • Q: If you could make one change to Mahara, what would it be?
    • “(Staff) dislike the use of social networking termsin this context (such as friend)”
    • “…(with) both push and pull to and from Moodle it would become a very powerful tool”
    • “In a perfect world the student would have an ePortfolio for life, not just their time at any particular institution”
    • So what’s new with Moodle 2.1 and Mahara 1.4?
    • Some new features:1. Mobile uploading2. Pushing content from Moodle3. Assessing pages in Moodle4. Soon: Pulling content from Moodle
