    What do you use?

    Hello,

    im new to here although been working in a school in suffolk for nearly a 1.5 yrs.....anyway......

    We use Sharepoint for our intranet so decided to use it as our VLE - so created an website open to the world which then directs you to the intranet once you are logged in. Every student and teacher has their own mysite with their personal N:|drives pointing to the personal document library within mysite - this then enables them to access there work from home :-D

    There is also a shared area where staff can share files with one another.

    each department have their own subsite to which they can add more or less whatever they want (homework, tasks, calendar etc....etc...)

    We also have Uniservity - but not sure how much this is going to be used? lol

    At one of my schools they was going to use Moodle until the whole VLE idea was abandoned. My other school uses Frog.

    imiddleton25 - i noticed your using the SIMS web parts, could you comment on how easy/hard they were to setup and could i possibly have a look at them in action?

    Thanks!

    I too am interested to know how easy and versatile SIMS web parts are.

    Are they also compatible with the lpplus northants VLE?

    What are the benefits of running Moodle with sharepoint? Does this enable you to use sharepoint as the backend to pull data and what not into moodle? I'm not too familiar with Sharepoint and so would be interested in finding out how this would integrate with Moodle, which we will most likely be using here by the way.

    Any idea what the official explanation for abandoning it was?

    Ours is provided by a combination of our LEA and ISP, I think the actual platform comes from Editure - Home

    It's OK, most of the staff don't use it, despite me and the Head really pushing it.
    After almost 10 months of it being up and running, a handful of staff use it for email, that's it. The notice board, calendar, file storage, no-one is interested in it as me and the techie set up network shared areas way before the VLP came into play, and everyone is happily using the network shares
