Mahara: How to download all files

As of September 2021 you will be using a new portfolio system called Mosaic which is a replacement for both BlueSky and Mahara.

To prepare for this it is important that you download any files that you have uploaded to Mahara so that you have a copy and can later upload them to the new portfolio system if required.

Files can be downloaded from Mahara in a few simple steps. Watch the short video or follow the guidance beneath it.
