What’s new with Mahara ePortfolios?
As an official individual Mahara Supporter and Business Partner, on behalf of Catalyst IT Europe, I was invited to attend a recent update meeting with Kristina Hoeppner, Mahara Project Lead and Community Facilitator, who shared with us some of the team’s updates.
- Mahara 22.10 is coming out soon!
Featuring a list of enhancements and new additions, the new version is out at the end of October. As with previous releases, Kristina will be hosting a number of webinars to walk through some of these new features, as well as presenting webinars for those who are wanting to find out more about Mahara in general.

- Fresh-looking website
If you haven't seen it already, go take a look at the new shiny website! The artwork is beautiful and really demonstrates Mahara’s ability to connect ideas, learning and people, as reflected through the choice of graphical design.
