Mahara is an open source ePortfolio and social networking web application. 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.
Electronic portfolios (also referred to as eportfolios or webfolios) are gaining recognition as a valuable tool for learners, instructors, and academic organizations.
This distinction is reminiscent of the discussions deciding on which term to use “elearning” or “web-based-training”. The debate was resolved through common use of the term elearning to encompass both. Due to the popular use of the term, this paper treats eportfolios as an umbrella concept that includes webfolios.
Definitions of eportfolios vary, but generally include the notion of a digital resource (personal artifacts, instructor comments) demonstrating growth, allowing for flexible expression (i.e. customized folders and site areas to meet the skill requirements of a particular job), and permitting access to varied interested parties (parents, potential employers, fellow learners, and instructors).
Creating a web space to fully track one’s academic progress from cradle to grave is unrealistic, but tracking major learning accomplishments throughout a higher education and career is highly feasible.

Creativity is all about creation and iPad is an ideal device to support this creative thinking. Check out the apps I have handpicked for you today and share with us if you have other suggestions :"
