Portfolio Commons is a project which adds remote export functionality to the Mahara eportfolio software.
In addition to the local export options which are built into Mahara, Portfolio Commons provides the capability for exporting HTML pages from Mahara directly to remote repositories, using the SWORD protocol.
This is useful for various scenarios – for example, sharing Mahara-generated pages to a learning repository as Open Educational Resources; or publishing research work authored in Mahara to a research repository.
The project makes it easy to deposit to remote targets without leaving the Mahara interface.
The Portfolio Commons code repository is hosted on GitHub:
