Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Source: Students emails, phone calls and evaluation feedback. Staff feedback.
Students could not understand why Mahara helps them and how they would benefit from its use. They saw it causing them more work to prepare when Mahara tends to have technical issues, as compared to their other units not using Mahara. They wish to submit each assignment in Word file format for marking in future.
Suggest to drop the use of Mahara in the two e-journal and e-portfolio assignments in this unit.
Action Taken
The use of Mahara will enable the students who graduate from their masters degree to take away a portfolio of their assessment work to showcase to their prospective employers. Since there was a proposed new version of Mahara with previous bugs removed for use in 2018, Mahara was used in a positive light in T1, 2018. Students were given very clear guidelines to help them obtain a better user experience in T1, 2018.
Source: Have your say survey, emails, phone calls.
Some students found it hard to use Mahara. They suggest to add a video tutorial on how to use Mahara with guidelines and instructions that will help them develop their Mahara assignments.
A Mahara video will be added to the unit Moodle website.
