    Remote access to a Terminal Server (Sun Global Desktop for example) for staff access to the full Sims. NET client which they are accustomed and trained(?) to use.

    TASC Insight for Parental engagement.

    If you decide to move forward with a local install of SLG you can add to it and turn it into a learning platform. You will need MOSS. You will need time and that elusive resource cash but there are many resources out there to use or buy in.

    There is a community, over 150 people at the LG conference. There are 3rd party tools. Salamander, Kraal, Twynham, Novotronix. There is free stuff codeplex etc. There are lots of bloggers and some excellent sites, ie enduser sharepoint. You can use SLK or moodle or both as your LE. Hunterstone have content zone. Studywiz have split there components so you can use so you can choose what you want, ePortfolio, elocker or mobile.

    There is a lot there but ask yourself as a school can we really do it and can we sustain it. I think what Phil Neale said was excellent, if you do it yourself, yes there are advantages but these need to be weighed against cost, skills etc.

    Just wondering what functionality MOSS provides (over WSS) that would make it necessary in order to use Sharepoint as a LP?

    Good question besides cost, there is a list on endusersharepoint but in a nutshell, mysites, search, BI and excel services.


    One is a portal with sites and the other lots of sites.
