Setting goals

Setting goals early in a course can help build a sense of purpose and motivation for students. Returning to those goals periodically to review progress is one way to emphasising students’ responsibility for their own learning.

Goal-setting can follow a Self Assessment or Reflective Journal activity using the Blog. Goals could be recorded in the Mahara Profile, which includes a section for personal, academic and career goals.

You will probably refer to the following topics in the Mahara User Guide:

Profile: Profile, Profile Icons, My Resume, My Goals, My Skills, Edit Profile

Blogs: My Blogs, Create a Blog, Add a Blog Post, Add a file from My Files, Upload a file to a Blog, Embed an image to a Blog post, View Blog, Blog comments.
