Call for submission: Mahara Newsletter – January 2021  

The next Mahara Newsletter will be published on 1 January 2021, and Mahara would like to hear from you about what you are doing with Mahara.

Mahara would like to invite everybody to submit a short story / article / announcement about:

  • your portfolio use (at your institution)
  • example portfolios
  • tips, tricks
  • plugin development
  • other development activities you are involved in
  • groups you are organising upcoming conferences / events on Mahara
  • recap of a conference / user group meeting

The contribution – It will be best if your text is up to 150 words long. Ideally, this will be a summary or the first paragraph of a blog post / announcement etc. that is available elsewhere online so that a longer text can be linked. If your text is only about 150 words long and does not include a link to a longer text, that is fine as well.

It can be a previously published text as long that is OK with the original source.

You can submit your text in a language other than English. However, it will have to be accompanied by an English summary so that those who don’t speak your language can get the gist of it.

If you want to see what others have written so far, please go to the Newsletter.

The deadline: Please send your contributions to newsletter@mahara.org latest by 22 December 2020.
