    Re: Draft of the Information Management Functional Requireme

    Just a couple of observations.

    Access to the platform remotely - Access to what exactly? I believe that a minimum criteria should be listed as to what parents are entitled to have access to. There is also an issue with curriculum programs as far as licensing goes - if they are saying that pupils should be able to access everything from home including programs then cost of licensing could rocket.

    Assessment management - 'This should include exam entries results and coursework.' - are we taliking about coursework results or the actual course work?

    Lesson Planning - If this is to be accessible nationally then it should state excatly what open format should be used.

    Staffing - The management of personnel could include.. - What?

    Coursework - again a specific format should be agreed and published.

    Cutomisable interface - I would recommend that this be scrapped and reworded to say that custisable interfaces should be available only within the limits required by DIDA recommendadtions.

    Remote access to the Learning Platform does not always mean remote access to the school network and applications on it. Putting it basically, it means access to the web-based interface that allows for access to student files, electronic resources, assessment tools and relevant information. It does not mean giving them free access to ProDesktop or Dreamweaver.

    Assessment management - 'This should include exam entries results and coursework.' - are we taliking about coursework results or the actual course work?
    We are talking about coursework marks as and when they are available.

    Most ePortfolio systems will allow for users to see the results of marked work.

    Lesson Planning - If this is to be accessible nationally then it should state excatly what open format should be used.
    This cannot be set as a standard format as lesson plans, schemes of work (or if you prefer ... mid term plans) and the associated teaching structure that goes behind the delivery varies from school to school. There will never be a standard way of teaching, only ever an acceptable minimal level of areas that need to be covered.

    This is one of the areas that is functional rather than technical, and so it should be sorted out by whoever looks after the teaching and learning within senior management at the relevant schools.

    Staffing - The management of personnel could include.. - What?
    Partly this is related to curriculum management ... who is teaching what, where and when with what resources ... partly this is about holding relevant details of personnel for tracking of information (eg, CPD).

    Coursework - again a specific format should be agreed and published.
    Formats are agreed by the exam boards based on representation from specified groups (eg Becta, DfES) and overseen by QCA. Where possible this is happening (DiDA is an example) but is not completed.

    Cutomisable interface - I would recommend that this be scrapped and reworded to say that customisable interfaces should be available only within the limits required by DIDA recommendadtions.
    What about other courses other than DiDA? The customisable interface also has to be included to allow for accessibility (now a point of law), as well as giving schools the flexibilty to adapt systems to fit in with the rest of the school. If a school has spent considerable time "branding" its resources then they should be able to continue this for a number of reasons ... to promote the ethos of the school, to allow for vertical learning (showing clear progression between years), to allow for customisation by subject ... and that is without getting on to the styles of learning and teaching ... which vary from school to school, from department to department.

    Re: Draft of the Information Management Functional Requireme

    I agree with everything you say. What I really failed to say was that if they are to publish a document like this then it should be clear as to what the meanings are.

    It would be terrible if things were left to interpretation. Hopefully this will happen in the final publication
