    I am D2D (no tape as we bought a mega server) but we are thinking about adding tape in possibly later.
    I would never pay again for the massively expensive BE lics, DPM for education is so so cheap and works very very well so far.

    Let us know how you get on as I'm very interest in moving away from BE which is so expensive compared to this product.
    What’s your setup? D2D2T?

    If it still shows the old name then it will still be worth updating. Then the name of the marksheet owner will be correct.

    question: does a person who is put on cover, via cover module gain access to the marksheets for the classes they are covering..?

    if a person is brought in to do a long cover, we often give them access to the other person's SIMS account so they can do that, because sometimes we still want the original teacher's name on the reports.

    otherwise, as you say the marksheets can be fairly easily recreated and the assessment operator should be told of any changes to the timetable. luckily for us, the timetabler also manages the reports set up

    i did actually think that with update course memberships, the course supervisors would also get updated and the marksheet control would just pass to the right person... even though on the template screen it has the old teachers name. we get this with our reg group based marksheets, it still shows the name of the person from two years ago, when i set it up, but actually gets assigned to the current class teacher and it's their name that gets printed in the report.

    It's more a case that I am looking for a solution where I can post a blog entry on my existing grumbledook.com site and then it will automagically become and entry in my EG blog ... rather than it being a manual job. I now have my blog posts announced on twitter via friendfeed ...

    Glad you like the post. Any comments for improvements?

    Maybe a little bit more of a teaser next time
    Copy the first few sentences etc to give a feel for the article (and keyword boost for SEO linkback)
    Nice post though

    Beware of electronic submission for work. Our lot press save after opening work from a website and end up losing it as it goes in the Temporary Internet Files folder!

    I have been knocking some background up of school images and just random 7 backgrounds which look good.
    I will be posting a guide soon on how to do it all yourselves so watch this space

    Wow! How did you do that? (and also what kind of images do you use?)

    Yeh they change daily and also working on rotating background without giving users the ability to change backgrounds. By default if you want to use W7 desktop rotation users have to be able to set the background which is a bad idea so I have made a workaround that rotates that background every 30 mins.

    Rotating Logon Backgrounds!! ? Cool !!!

    I've already changed it to our own logon background and desktop, but I like that idea.

    We are half way down the road here with it all. I have mostly been working on the pimp side of things (rotating login background for example) to wow staff lately but we have a handle on all the other bits so far.

    We think about links from the point of view of teaching and learning. We consider they are reflective - they encourage students (and teachers) to up their game which leads to improvement (eg in literacy when writing to your partner school or in communication skills when creating a presentation or resource). They also provide the 'global dimension' which is about young people appreciating other cultures and societies and their context in the world. This aspect is now throughout all QCDA requirements for the curriculum.
