ePortfolio Blogging + Mahara

Starting off with a new term and accompanying set of requirements, I am now using an ePortfolio platform provided by the university on their domain.
It appears as very ‘new’, ‘barebones’ and unwieldy as of now, so I hope that it will suffice for my and other students needs.
Happy to peruse unfocused LSBU communications, I just found out about Mahara, a platform for ePortfolios.
Although my groups were not told about Mahara, given recommendations for Weebly and WordPress, the somewhat obscure platform appears as uniquely superior.
Along with providing more learning-based interactions, Mahara can be integrated with the university submissions system (Moodle) to afford tutors and markers eased access to student ePortfolio assignments.
Though I am not intending to transition my ePortfolio to Mahara, due to no current requirement, I will certainly spend more time with it to experience its dynamics.
I may find that they are one and the same.
