    +1 for Clickview, not cheap but works well and popular with teachers. We haven't purchased any of the video libraries but there's a ton of stuff available in the "Clickview Exchange"...

    Out of curiousity, How did you manage to get clickview out there with teachers
    We are currently rolling clickview out, but i notice half the teachers dont even know about clickview and they didn't even notice the icon on the desktop.
    Also the clickview exchange getting teacher firmilia with that or does that come with time.

    ClickView do free support and training if you want them to come in and do it

    Just speak to your account manager and maybe try organise it between them and staff? We offered it generally to staff but also to heads of department and this allowed them to filter training down to staff.......

    I have another query, How do you allow staff to setup lesson plans in your school without the Clickview Management?

    Hi James,

    If you ever want to call the office press 2 for tech support and we're always happy to run through things on the phone. The number is 01223 327926.

    Or as has been suggested above there's no charge if you'd like your Regional Manager to visit and conduct some training.

    For those using ClickView, what sort of server spec do you have to run it all?

    Just an old dual, dual core P4 level Xeon. It is quite light comparitivly, storage piped into a san and dual gb nics and we have never managed to make it sweat.

    The main thing is the storage throughput, there is not transcoding or anything so it is just a lightweight DB and a bunch of files to stream. The important thing is having the room and the speed in the storage subsystem, a small school could probably manage with sata but SAS would be better. Unless you are scaling massivly you don't need much more.

    Hi Edu-IT,

    Our minimum and recommended specs for all parts of our system are available on our website here:

    ClickView - the digital video solution for schools

    I've seen machines with lower specs than we've listed here happily running ClickView Library Server, but obviously should there be any sort of performance issue and the spec didn't at least meet our minimum recommended we'd firstly suggest that the server is brought up to standard. But we're happy for users to run ClickView Library Server on any Windows machine as long as they understand the drawbacks should it not meet our minimum spec.

    Yes it will happily run on a virtual server, a number of schools are set up with a virtual server and it's fully supported.
