Welcome to the Mahara Demo Site

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

This site runs Mahara 1.9.2, which was released in August 2014. Please refer to the Mahara user manual to learn more about the Mahara features and how it works.

This 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.
