General thoughts about Mahara 02/14/2020 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences 2 Recognizing Prior Learning (RPL) Learning does not always take place in the classroom: it also

happens on the job, at home, and in the community. The recognition of prior learning is a reliable process that takes into consideration ALL learning by examining what a person knows and can do. http://www.aeei.gov.sk.ca/rpl 02/14/2020 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences 3

02/14/2020 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences 27 Students Experiences Mahara Metropolia piloting 2010-2011 Students Experiences 1 Mahara was quite easy to use, even though I have never used

Facebook and I didnt know what a blog is either Our Mahara-group was handy, because it made possible to return assignments so that not only the teacher could see or comment on them 02/14/2020 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences 29

Students Experiences 2 Idea of Mahara is fine, but it should have been available already at the beginning of my studies I dont bother moving everything into Mahara any longer I am a little suspicious about Mahara, because I dont know much about modern communication technologies 02/14/2020 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences

30 Students Experiences 3 If an employer is a modern one, it is possible to show a CV through Mahara More difficult to use than Facebook It was great to get to know MaharaI believe that the use of it will increase in the future 02/14/2020

Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences 31 Students Experiences 4 Mahara is really easy to use and it can be used to produce simple web-pages The look of Mahara is not especially attractive and you cant affect the look of your pages very much Editing the profile page is very flexible and you dont have to show anything to others if you dont want to

Mahara is a great tool for educators and employers to get to know the person they are dealing with. Mahara can also be used as a tool for teachers professional development. To really use Mahara as a tool in RPL, the users should be strongly advised to gather the material into Mahara during their all life long. 02/14/2020 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences
