About this demo site

Mahara is a fully featured web application to build your electronic portfolio. You can create journals, upload files, embed third-party resources from the web and collaborate with other users in groups.

This site runs Mahara 16.10, which was released on 21 October 2016. Please refer to the Mahara user manual to learn more about the Mahara features and how it works.

This demo site will reset itself once a day at 7 a.m. GMT. All content will be erased then and only the pre-configured content will be available.

If you want to keep anything before the reset, please export your portfolio in Leap2A under My Portfolio -> Export to be able to import it into another Mahara later on.
