UCS' Mahara Upgrade 17th February

UCS' e-Portfolio tool, Mahara, will be upgraded on the 17th of February to the latest stable release of the Mahara software, version 1.10.2.

The upgrade will take place between 7am and 9am on Tuesday the 17th of February. The rest of the day will be seen as an 'at risk' period while we complete our checks.

This upgrade will bring with it many many new features and abilities, including but not limited to:

  • Many new blocks for portfolio pages
  • Enhanced feedback routes
  • Enhanced multimedia functionality
  • Ability for users to archive and restore Leap2A files
  • Inline PDF viewing in portfolio pages
  • Drag and drop uploading of files
A blog post will come in the near future detailing a full list of features and changes.

Along with these new features, the upgrade will also make sure Mahara is up to date with it's security patches.

We would advise users of Mahara to not attempt to log in during the upgrade period. We will notify users via MyUCS when Mahara has been fully upgraded and our checks are complete.

If any users would like to get in touch with the Elevate Team about the use of e-Portfolios and Mahara, please contact us -
