e.Portfolio - Mahara

Allowing you a 100MB of storage an e.Portfolio account is a great site to display and store educational artifacts you have produced. A benefit of an e.portfolio is you can take it with you regardless of which institution you work at. For this course I created a Mahara account and I think its great. In Mahara you can creat folders and subfolders for different topics, view and post blogs, upload images and video's I find usefull or interesting, attach my resume and its easy to use and manage. Mahara is useful and I wish to continue using it in the future.
