What’s new in Mahara 1.5?

April 23, 2012

What’s new in Mahara 1.5: A selection

Mahara 1.5 comes packed with over 80 new features and many bug fixes. In this presentation, we will look at a few of these in the areas of design, page content, user access, usability, groups, administration, security, and authentication.

If you are an e-portfolio enthusiast  (and a Mahara practitioner ) this event will engage you in the Mahara world of e-portfolios. The event is the forerunner to a series of E-portfolios in Focus webinars coming up in May. Come back for details on those soon.

Come and join us on Wednesday, 25 April at 8 pm AEST. Yes, that’s right on ANZAC day, what better way to celebrate than with another fine collaboration between Australia and New Zealand. Bring your own Anzac Biscuits!
