Teachers working from home: Terminal services vs Web Services
To deploy Terminal Services for teachers remote working from home is taking us back to time warp of dumb terminal based remote working - if anyone can remember!!.
Yet Schools Network managers are queuing up to build towers of Terminal Servers.
Has anyone seen Becta guidelines on remote working??
specifically refering to technology for "Teachers working from home"
We are talking cross purpose. I can see your argument for deployment of TS within school for Windows applications for curriculum purposes.
Thin Clients are turning an unsustainable number of Workstations, into a sustainable number of "clients".
As the title suggest, I am specifically refering to "Teachers working from home" and technology that should be used for access - Web vs TS and namely for MIS applications eg assessement etc...
At home teachers will have a decent spec PC or Laptop and in anycase all he/she needs to use is a browser - which itself is the THINEST THIN CLIENT you can get.
