“Mahara provides a lot of functions to the users. It provides separate features for the admin and the user which makes it very efficient also it provides scalability.”
“Mahara is very easy to use. It also provides a demo which gives the user enough understanding about the application and system.”
“Can add feedback to page and effective star assessment feature. Can create collections of pages that link together via web buttons. Can create simple templates eg 2-3 columns, different sizes.”

“Navigation to some areas is not as straightforward as it could be. Some processes are not hugely intuitive eg file uploads, dragging blocks (although you soon get used to it). Limited backup functionality through the use of exports.”
