We use PebblePad here at City but have also been looking at Mahara as a possible ePortfolio solution. What about WordPress though? What are the requirements for an ePortfolio solution anyway? Mahara seems overly complicated to me.
WordPress.com is quick to setup, easy to use and can (at the very least) be used as a reflective journal. You can make it private, invite people to view and comment, add media etc … seems to tick many boxes. And it is yours, to take with you, no institutional lock-ins or migrations needed. By using WordPress.com together with YouTube, Flickr etc it’s a kind of ePortfolio mashup.
