    sharepoint guides

    Hi all

    We at holte school in birmingham are using sharepoint for our vle. I am however having trouble with this as where i previously worked 4 weeks ago we used moodle! We have a kind of working vle with sharepoint but i think it can do more than we are using it for. Do anyone know of some free learning websites for this or even better a free website focused at sharepoint use in schools?

    thanks

    very useful stuff. Do most people in schools who use sharepoint, design and maintain them themselves manually or do they mostly use a program such as salamander?

    Schools have a number of options

    1. If in BSF have the learning platform solution. A lot are sharepoint
    2. Have it hosted
    3. Build it yourself
    4. Get someone to build it for you.


    Option 3 is attractive if you have time but the companies who build/intergrate have experience.

    The only thing about doing it yourself nowdays is there is a lot of support.
    When I started there was none.

    Even getting somebody to build it for you still gives you a lot of room to add and develop.

    4 years ago I had a call from a local authority. They had an issue with sharepoint. 2 of their teckies had spent months trying to resolve it. I was able to point them in the direction of the fix but also get them to consider buying in support. They then bought in support.

    Whilst there is a lot of free support now, consider some form of support.
