    Sharepoint Learning Kit

    Anybody seen it yet? Its coming out in 2007, its the replacement for class server by the looks of it, but more beefed up. We were going to use Moodle, but i think i'll hold off. The part i like is you can import all your old Class Server assignments, which i think look much better than moodle quiz's.

    link is on the right hand side at the top.

    I'm going for moodle, i was not that happy with it after playing with it a bit more. Moodle seems more feature rich.

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit

    Think I have found the same presentation. It's a bit vague.

    The following caught my eye ..

    ----
    Class Server is replaced by SLK, and will be removed from the price list in January 2007

    SharePont [SIC] Learning Kit is a Community Source project.

    SLK is not an LMS because it has:
    No built-in authoring tools
    No out-of-the-box reporting suite
    No out-of-the-box course/curriculum builder tools
    No out-of-the-box curriculum standards alignment tool (SLK standards alignment is dependent upon the alignment of the content)

    ---

    Does this mean Class Server is to be replaced by something with less features that is free or am I missing something? :?

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit

    If I remember rightly from seeing stuff about SLK (and chatting with a provider today) the lack of authoring tools is down to web parts being available to do chunks of this already.

    Mark A'Bear will hopefully give some information of this at the conference in a fortnight's time.

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit

    Some basic feedback from the conference on this ...

    The Sharepoint Learning Kit is a hand toolkit for creating resources and learning pbjects that are SCORM 2004 compliant and can be bolted onto either Windows Sharepoint Service 3.0 (which is free) or Sharepoint Portal 2007 (which is not).

    For most schools building up a generic site WSS 3.0 on SQL Express will be fine ... and if you spend time creating SCORM 2004 complaint materials (which was demonstrated and very simple) them you can move the objects to other LPs ...

    The web parts were interesting too ... Moodle web parts, SIMS web parts ... but not even a screen shot yet of CMIS web parts.

    Mark A'Bear is checking up on how happy WSS 3.0 is with containing web 2.0 materials (which actually fits in with the session from Josie Fraser on Personalised Learning Environments) ... and I'll post this info when I get it.

    There will be be materials available for schools to make a start with this and if I can create a sandpit over the next few weeks I will (or try and persuade someone else to). This will definitely be something to look out for at BETT.

    As always ... more info will follow.

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit

    I read about this in the TechNet UK magazine it says got to http://www.microsoft.com/education/slk.mspx for more details. The article also say the full kit will be available for download in early 2007.
    SLK will be covered by the Microsoft Community License (Ms-CL) and available at no cost. If you want to engage with the community prior to launch, Microsoft invites you to do so.
    They are also releasing a Community Kit that helps you create sites for clubs and events

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit

    Thanks for the feedback, Tony. Still trying to digest it - perhaps it will come together when the kids have gone home :-)

    A sandpit area uld be great if it happens. You can already download SLK from http://www.learninggateway.net/default.aspx but it needs one of the sharepoint 2007 betas to run as far as i can make out. Tried to get that from the MS website but it didn't like my debit card for some reason :-/
