Use social networking tools

Mahara recognises that learning is a social activity and is therefore built around the concept of social networking. In Mahara, one may have a collection of friends; may belong to one or more groups and may offer feedback to other people.

Adding feedback to views.

To familiarise yourself with the social networking side of Mahara, complete the following:

  • Search for and find a 'friend'
  • Send a friend request
  • Request membership of (or join) a group
  • Share a view with me and one other person
  • Add a 'Secret URL' to a view and email this URL to a third person.
  • Add feedback to a view that someone shares with you.


Collections are groups of pages that can be shared. To create a collection, go Portfolio > Collections > New collection. Add the pages you would like to include in the collection and save. Be aware that adding a secret URL for one page in a collection makes all pages in the collection available for view. Extension: Create a group for a class you teach and set it up for them to become members. Video Create a group in Mahara
