    Sure, but not using computers somewhere at the other end of an Internet connection, not yet, anyway. Internet connections still aren't reliable/fast enough, it will be a few years until an Internet connection can cope with 30/60/90/etc pupils video editing at the same time. Also, your data winds up on someone else's random system somewhere, or (more likly) several someones' several systems somewhere, you don't have full control over it and you can't (yet) make all those separate system work together nicely.

    Those systems probably aren't on the same network, though, possibly not even the same physical wiring.

    Another question which needs addressing is how you ensure that staff aren't teaching lessons using illegal software on their personal computers - could put the school in a nasty position.

    I know I'm coming across very negatively on this, which I don't entirely mean to. While we do have a "no" policy, this is because we haven't found acceptable (i.e. both technically and financially possible) methods of delivering such a service, and therefore say no, and will continue to do so until we can find a such a solution.
