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’.
Using the information within FVC’s help area, export your
Template to take home.
