Principle of the portfolio work in Mahara

Your portfolio is both a LEARNING- and an EXAMINATION/ASSESSMENT portfolio. You will spend almost all of your time in the learning portfolio, which in Mahara is accommodated in the "content" menu. When it's time for assessment of your portfolio, you make a display page, containing your selection of experiences and reflections - documented in the "content" part. This work principle is illustrated in the picture below. How to create Journals, Entries and Pages is described in detail in the Mahara Quick Guide.
