About this site

As an eLearning Advisor, I am keen to explore the possibilities of technologies for teaching and learning. This site will highlight some of the findings of the My Portfolio project for schools and tertiary sectors in which I am involved, as well as news, comments and reflections on learning technology in general.

Posted by Andy on 25 September 2008, 10:36 AM







In recognition of the contribution to education, Mahara won the category for 'open source use in education' at last night's New Zealand open source Awards 2008 It was high recognition from the great and the good of the New Zealand open source community .

cast of many helped to get Mahara to the stage it is at today and have ensured that it has gone from strength to strength. As the enhancements to the forthcoming release of Mahara 1.1 can testify, there is growing involvement and contribution from the international Mahara community. All of which, of course, is great news for users of the My Portfolio service in New Zealand.
