Yes - especially curious if it allows you to easily top and tail the content so you can frame it better towards your target audiences and objectives.

Let me know which app/feature - this sounds quite exciting!
Lee Ballantyne's comment, March 26, 2013 3:29 PM
It's direct...no app required with 1.7. Only photos though (well that's all I checked)
Suhad's curator insight, March 27, 2013 8:04 AM

Here is a very useful guide for using Mahara and understanding the effectiveness and usefulness of each part of it, so you can make the best use of it. But the good part of Mahara is its flexibility and being customizeable for the user so that you can make it your own representation.

WOW! Does this appear to be a powerful and promising tool, or what? If you're into making video, you might want to get used to using Mozilla Firefox for a while and then start using Popcorn Maker when it's time to make those new, shiney movies! Wonder what our friends at FAME thing about this?

Aulde de Barbuat's curator insight, April 15, 2013 4:49 PM

Looks like the ideal tool. Great that it is open source.

Daniels's curator insight, April 16, 2013 10:53 AM

A hot tool IMO, I am soon going to try it.
