    After extended email & Telephone exchanges
    I have recieved this on 1st December 2009 approx 2 years after registering

    I can confirm that I have just packed up your memory sticks personally and they are going out tonight by Recorded Delivery.

    Please let me know when you have received them and we can discuss further.

    Thanks again

    Best Wishes

    Project Director


    Recieved a package of 40+ 4 gig Pens for distribution on 3rd December 2009

    Recieved this back after acknowledging delivery

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Have you had a chance to use one yet?

    What did you think of the memory sticks?

    I would also ask if it was possible if you would be prepared to post an entry on Edugeek confirming that you have now received your memory sticks.

    If any individuals in the forum have not received theirs then they can contact me and I will arrange delivery for them. Obviously it is hard for me to identify them as they all use different names etc.

    In addition we also pay teachers who wish to submit any educational resources that can be used on our Web Channel for other teachers to download to their memory sticks. If any of your colleagues would be interested in this please let me know and I can provide you with further information outlining what we are looking for.

    I look forward to hearing back from you and please let me know if you are happy to make a post in the forum.

    Best

    Project Director

    tbh we came to the conclusion it was a marketing scam to get loads of teachers names and email address's

    It wasn't a marketing scam ... the idea was to get together a bunch of resources and make them available online, and then encourage other teachers to share things openly, funded by adverts and promotions from selected partners (so yes ... marketing but no scam). They will be at BETT again this year IIRC so you can pick up your USB stick from there and negotiate a better way for your staff to register.

    That would be every member of staff at our school then, who all registered within the first week of the scheme launching. Sorry, but I'd consider this a failed scheme and just drop it. Until the goods arrive, it is a scam. If the goods never arrive, then all they've done is harvest marketing info without coming thru on their side of the deal - ie: they supply a memorystick to us by post. Nowhere did it say "go to BETT to pick up your usb sticks". I will do so if they provide the fuel costs.

    If not a scam, it's certainly a sham.

    "as soon as possible" meaning "in excess of 3 years"...

    Whether they think it or not, being unable to meet their side of the bargain within a reasonable time frame (ie. within a few months) is not on. Calling it a scam may be a bit far, but it is ridiculously poorly managed.

    What did they expect? If you're going to offer something for free, you're going to get a lot of demand!

    We're all still waiting here for ours. Since signing up we've had deaths, births, marriages and divorces. And we've got paint peeling on the walls in the staff room.

    And the spamming continues. One on Thursday and another late Friday night. The Friday one was nothing more than an advert for Rymans.
