  •     Mahara E-Portfolio - Over the past few  years, the Instruction Technology Team has been redefining an e-portfolio application called Mahara.  Mahara allows you to easily collect and display academic, professional, and personal artifacts that you can use to track personal progress through your graduate program or use to send to preospective employers or academic programs.  During the month of October, the IT Team will hold training sessions to introduce you to Mahara as well as help you apply a template that the Office of Graduate Student Life has set up to act as a guide for your initial use. The dates are listed below as well as a link to a sign up form.  Please use the sign-up form as seats are limited.  Please note some sessions are at Mountaintop and some on lower campus.  There will also be two additional online sessions that will be recorded.
