    Successmaker alternatives

    Hi all,

    I am sure lots of you have heard of Successmaker - a learning support package to do with Spelling, Maths etc.

    We are running this on 2k3 r2 here, the only box we have here running that! I was wondering if any of you use any alternatives? all it seems to be doing is giving us headaches here and we would really like to move it's server over to 2k8. The reason we are not using 2k8 is that the sybase db software it runs on is only compatable with 2k3!


    Cheers!

    wow I remember running that on an NT box.. if you can't find an alternative you could always run it on a virtual server

    I am running it on a VM luckily ... just hate it! SO problematic ... not even RM seem to be quick in finding fixes for our problems. I have followed their guides/knowledgebase to the bone.

    Its always been a problem that software - I used to just try and ignore it as much as possible.

    maybe the best thing to look at would be SCORM content within a VLE..?

    I look after 4 schools that are running Success Maker Enterprise, I very rarly have any issues at all, if I do its generally because the sybase services has not restarted after a server reboot.

    As an alternative you could try looking at the Lexia software.
