Sims Learning Gateway.... a failure?
I've been asked to asses the success of our Capita Sims Learning Gateway (SLG) by our SMT.
We paid around 15k for the local version of it around 18 months ago with the hope of it replacing written reports and giving parents online attendance data.
Here's some statistics:
1,176 Total Parent accounts created
270 Total Parents who have accessed the SLG (1 or more logins)
12 Regular parent users (more than 10 logins)
4 Regular teacher users (more than 10 logins)
76 Generated Support Requests
So my question is really out there to anyone, has it been successful in your school?
My personal opinion is that its a great idea but based on the wrong technology. Sharepoint is just too complicated for casual users.
An iPad app or integrated with Sims would be a much better option.
