    Glow
    As far as I can recall, and I'm happy to be corrected on this, the Scottish education secretary wanted a nationwide digital network setting up. They put it out to tender and RM came up with the best solution, which from what I've read, is a bespoke version of Kaleidos. Everyone seems happy with the solution. Why can't we have that sort of joined up thinking south of the border?

    I went to some presentations on GLOW, it is basically a higher speed network combined with a nationwide Intranet, based off of sharepoint.

    It includes Video Conferencing (repacked 3rd party software from marratech), and the ability to setup shared spaces, VLE, staff / student personal pages. They were running the servers from a datacentre outside Edinburgh I think. They were working on using single sign on with Shibboleth. They were also pushing it as them providing the infrastructure but the LA / schools will decide how much or little they use of the technology.
