Mahara is developed by a world-wide team of programmers, translators, designers and enthusiastic amateurs. Many individuals and groups have contributed to Mahara so far.

Core Teams

Mahara Governance Group

The Mahara Governance group combines the strengths of the core partners; specialist e-learning service providers Kineo Pacific and the leading open source company Catalyst IT:

  • Don Christie, Catalyst IT Director
  • Mike O'Connor, Catalyst IT Director
  • Nolen Smith, Kineo Pacific Director
  • Richard Wyles, Project Leader and Kineo Pacific Director

The main function of this group is to provide overall project direction and policy and ensure the project has the appropriate resources from each respective company. As an open source community project, Mahara is guided by broad consultation with the Mahara community.

Community

Organisations

A large part of the development on Mahara would not be possible without the funding from institutions and organisations.

The University of Glasgow have funded several pieces of work for us, including View Templates, part of Import/Export (the HTML export is thanks to them), and various bug fixes.

GLISI/Ray Merrill funded enhancements to Mahara's groups, and Ray has provided much invaluable guidance around Mahara's usability.

With JISC funding we were able to add import/export functionality to the Mahara e-portfolio system, as part of the 1.2 release. This work was sponsored by the University of London Computer Centre, University of Glasgow and JISC Cetis.

A collaborative group in the State of New Hampshire funded the ability to submit Mahara Views for assessment in Moodle, through a grant from the New Hampshire Department of Education.

Cambridge University School of Clinical Medicine sponsored the development of the plugin Problems & Conditions.

The BScE at the University of Luxembourg funded the development of the tag cloud, improvements to the feedback function in the 1.2 and 1.3 releases, and bug fixes for Mac servers.

Birmingham City University funded the initial development work for Collections and Plans (new features in Mahara 1.3). They also supported the development of locking down blog posts and files that are used in submitted views.

Lancaster University Network Services (LUNS Ltd.) was funded by Cumbria and Lancashire Education Online (CLEO) to design several features.

United World College of South East Asia funded the CSV Group upload.

The New Zealand Ministry of Education funded a large number of features and usability changes to Mahara 1.4 and 1.5 that were implemented by Catalyst IT
