    Open Source Schools presentation now available

    Evenin' folks

    Still scrabbling around and tidying up things from BETT.

    For those who were not able to make the session (unfortunately I was one of these) a video of Miles and Co's presentation on Open Source Schools is now available.

    Pop over to the Open Source Schools website for more details.

    No, Miles is sorting out the website - he spent most of the Christmas break installing Drupal and writing content. I'm not sure exactly what the £270,000 covers (and I don't think Miles got any of it, either), but that's really a very small amount for a two-year consultancy contract. Bear in mind that to hire one person from Capita to move SIMS for you costs £1,000 per day, that's your money used up in one year.
