MAHARA- DISCUSSION ONLINE
I am new to the use of this eportfolio named EXABIS.
I checked the materials provided and also the links. I confess that I was puzzled because I thought of MOODLE as a LMS while it has a lot of external links.
It is a special plugin and once you have it on the Moodle it can be used for students' and also teachers' eportfolios.
It can be used for collecting artefacts, links to the portofolio and activities which students have done.
It is a sort of your ID card with references to what you have done.
I think that by using the MOODLE the teachers could easily have access to what the students have done and showcased.
I am curious about it and I will check on line what is being presented in this MOOC.
WHAT IS IT?
from the WIKI
"Mahara is an open-source e-portfolio for education. An e-portfolio is a type of web application that allows users to record and share evidence of lifelong learning."
I have never come across it, I have heard about it and now I might try to use it.
Meanwhile and I can say that after I have used Exabit having a portfolio online is really important.
In education if we have MOODLE and EXABIT we can check the students' tasks and I really liked the activities dealing with exporting posts in the blog area.
I will have to learn about the best practices as I have never used eportfolios in education but they seem to be very useful.
