    All seemed abit rushed. The majority of the stuff they want to put it we already have anyway.

    Tameside BSF

    Alreet guys, have any of you actually gone through the process yet? we are due to go across in feb 2011 but have not heard from Ramesys yet about anything. They won't speak to us untill feb next year but are also slow on the equipment side and what there plans actually are for the school. Times ticking away and the time scales they have set are beginnign to worry us. Any of this ring true with anyone else?

    Ramesys only do the VLE the managed service is provided by Capita. PM me with your e-mail address and i will send you an e-mail address of someone who might be able to help.

    No their not!!! Heads and LEA not happy with Assimilate and looks like they will have to look elsewhere (Uniservity anyone?)

    Can't beleive we got to the signing on stage before we the customer got to see Assimilate only to find out that it dosn't do what the output specification asked for

    Good job a key decision maker is retiring, how their alowed to get away with this is beyond me

    I was there

    Two key features were missing from Assimilate; Parental Access and e-portfolios.
    There were a lot of other gaps in what this Learning Platform offered. No Mark Book, no ability for peer review, no learning journal, a very poor wizard for setting up courses (I think I counted 8-9 steps), the calendar only gave you the date, if you wanted the diary function you had to use Outlook (not integrated into Assimilate). There is a long list of stuff which I won't go into here, and I don't feel that if they started from scratch to incorporate all these features they'd have something fully tested and running by September 2010.

    For those who are interested. At the meeting it was said that no actual contract with Carillion was signed, today this was completed. Construction work on Siddal Moor and Hollingworth starts in a months time.

    My cousin lives in Rochdale. I'm from Bacup originally.

    Nothing to do with the convo - but thought everyone might like to know that important bit of information.
