The University of Nottingham is using Mahara to support personalised and community learning for students and staff. 

Mahara is a flexible ePortfolio tool with social networking features. It has many pedagogical applications and enhances and extends the University's eLearning toolkit. 

Mahara is currently in 'pilot' whilst we gauge University interest and understand future requirements.
