Mahara ePortfolio System

TDM have been a Mahara supporter since 2007.
“Learning Up!”

Mahara is a learner-driven reflective learning environment in which learners:

  • Store their learning artefacts (helping to CAPTURE learning for the employer)
  • Build their Reflective ePortfolios (helping to CONSOLIDATE and CREATE new learning for the employer)
  • Work in learning groups (communities of practice/interest) (helping the employer to TRANSFER learning and GENERATE new ideas).


TDM have hosted and supported mission-critical Mahara platforms since 2007.

We published two books on Mahara deployment. We can help your organisation with:

  • Mahara deployment and learning consultancy
  • Mahara software hosting and helpdesk support
  • Codeline modifications and platform integrations as needed.

Our satisfied clients include Colleges, Universities, other Training Providers and professional bodies such as The Pensions Regulator.
