Training Workshop Multimedia
One advantage that e-portfolios have over traditional forms of assessment is their ability to be used to showcase performance, particularly over time. Multimedia offers us an outstanding opportunity to capture performance over time.
There are two key ways to add video to a Mahara portfolio:
- Embedded media (when a user uploads a video directly to Mahara and controls who can see it through restricting page access, and
- External media (when a user brings in media from external websites like Youtube or Google Video)
Note: The image gallery feature of Mahara 1.3 allows learners to present multiple images or videos in a single block. (Use this one if you can't find one of your own. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MIF-E2uu2Y)
Mobile phones are essentially mobile recorders of evidence of learning. If you have an Android smartphone, install the free 'Maharadroid' app and upload photos to your portfolio.
