ePortfolio (Mahara)

An ePortfolio can be considered to be an extension of the paper based-portfolio, bringing with it the obvious benefit of making a portfolio of evidence portable and shareable anywhere that you have Internet access.

Mahara can be used to create an online collection of reflections and digital artefacts (such as documents, blogs, resumes, multimedia, hyperlinks).
