December 1st 2023

The Open Polytechnic will no longer be using the Mahara e-portfolio service after 1 December 2023. 

After this date, you will no longer be able to access your Open Polytechnic Mahara account


If you wish to download a copy of your Mahara e-portfolio, please follow these instructions on the Mahara website. You have two options:  

  • Download as an HTML file – when the zip file is extracted on your PC, to give you a read-only version via your browser. 
  • Download in Leap2A format. This provides a file that can then be imported into another Leap2A-compliant system, or another organisation’s Mahara. 


If you do wish to download items, you will have until 30 November 2023 to do so.  


If you have any questions, please contact Open Polytechnic: customerservices@openpolytechnic.ac.nz or call us on free phone  0508 650 200 weekdays between 8am-5pm.

Distance learning with Open Polytechnic gives you the flexibility to study where and when you like.

And now you can have even more flexibility, with an electronic portfolio.

An e-portfolio lets you create, save and share your learning journey with others.
