Mahara is an open source ePortfolio and social networking web application created by the government of New Zealand. It provides users with tools to create and maintain a digital portfolio of their learning, and social networking features to allow users to interact with each other.
Mahara content management system provides users with blogs, a resume builder, a file manager and a view creator - a tool to help users create arrangements of their content in a particular way for others to see.
Mahara supports the Leap2A specification for importing and exporting data, allowing a user to take their content with them from one Mahara installation and import it into another. Limited interoperability exists between Mahara and other systems supporting the Leap2A standard also. The name "Mahara" is derived from the māori word for thought.
