    Any schools using school spider?

    I have just been speaking to someone from a new VLE called school spider because we are having a lovers tiff with Moodle and are hoping to change to something with a bit less work involved. It looks really good and ticks all the boxes in terms of what we are looking for. I just wondered if anyone was using it or had any knowledge on it since the first time I heard about it was about 2 hours ago.

    I'm having a demo with them this afternoon, might as well see what it's got to offer.

    If you could do a list @LoundsZ of what good/bad it offers much appreciated.

    Our school is currently looking at RealSmart and its 5K for a good all round basics VLE.

    School Spider is very basic, it is definitely designed for primary with big buttons and fun fonts. It doesn't link in with your MIS such as Sims or CMIS. It does the basics of what we're wanting as a school and that a homework function (so the assigning of homework to a student and the student to upload the document back to the teacher) and school spider does this well, but then theres not much to it after that. The package they like to do is design and host you a website which links in with their VLE side of things. This is webased service only, so you can't host it on your site :-/ but it is very cheap, they said for an average primary school they charge £800 a year, for myself of a school of 1200 pupils they said they would do me a deal for £1200 a year. If you are looking for a all in one service for website, VLE without your school supporting it IT wise this is a great service/product, unfortunately I don't think it's for myself and the school I work at. If you think it might be up your street ask for a demo.
