    Hello again and thanks for the welcome(s), I'd love to take some business from here but I'm a realist and a Yorkshireman and realise "Tha can't get owt for nowt". I joined to get some insight in to the Educational Sector, to find out how contracts are awarded and to offer any help I can.

    I realise the easiest way to find this information out is to help and in time hopefully my questions will be answered.

    Once again, thanks for the warm welcome,

    Rob

    Hi everyone, regular stalker but first time poster. I'm Dave, been working in education as tech support, for the best part of 12 years now, firstly for Leeds University, now a secondary school in Liverpool. I've fallen in love with this place already and will definitely be picking the brains of everyone here as I think I'll need it with some of the upcoming projects I have in mind

    Hi All! I am an English Language teacher trying to incorporate digital technologies into my teaching. I teach at both a college and privately.
    I joined EduGeeks in the hope that I may be able to learn a little more and, more specifically, to see if I can find a solution to our online learning needs.

    Together with a few colleagues I have been looking at VLEs for over a year now and unfortunately we have made little headway owing to the fact that none of them seem quite right for what we are looking for.

    Ultimately, I want to be able to store / manage my teaching resources so I can access them from one place (online) and also share them with my students so they can access them online too (from home and even on the go via smartphones/tablets). I'd like, for example, to be able to create an online 'repository' where my students can go and browse through all the materials I have used in class -from documents and videos to simple web links. Other than the "traditional" VLEs (Moodle, etc) does anyone know of any other (simple and inexpensive!) solutions?

    Although I have tried installing Moodle myself we found it pretty complicated and to be honest I’m not sure we need 90% of the features it offers anyway. So far we have been using USBs and even emailing students (not great solutions!) and more recently have started using an online file-sharing platform called Dropbox but that got a little muddled as it wasn’t easy for students to search for resources (plus I needed to share links which it doesn’t do).

    Advice or recommendations would be much appreciated.
    Look forward to getting to know the community here...
    Thanks All!
    Emma

    Welcome to EduGeek, Emma.

    I think a Wiki would be a good fit for what you want to achieve. There are loads of free ones that have similar requirements to Moodle (but generally easier to install) - some of the most popular ones:

    Wikka: Welcome to WikkaWiki
    MediaWiki
    http://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki

    Or, you could use a hosted solution like Wikispaces or pbwiki.

    This might help deciding: WikiMatrix - Compare them all

    dave and emma

    emma - @ we use wikispaces. i was going to recommend some of the usual suspects i.e. frog, sharepoint etc. but if cost is an issue, perhaps look at office365 for enabling shared spaces, shared resources and collaboration. It has it's pros and cons but at least it's bound within your school domain wrapper. Similar would be google apps. You'll find more info in some of the other threads if you look around.

    You'd be disappointed - "all girl's catholic school" might sound good but then you go to "southampton" and it ruins it all!

    Well done Karl. If all goes well they might offer you a full time contract at the end of it so who knows!
