    Vanilla Sharepoint as a learning platform?

    Hi,

    I was wondering how and whether those of you running MS Learning Gateway, or just sharepoint, have customised your sharepoint site(s) to incorporate teaching and learning concepts, and how they're linked together, ie curriculum, schemes of work, lesson plans and teaching resources. Obviously these would be doc libs and lists, but I'm interested in how you've joined them up. Also, do you use your own metadata, or do you use Curriculum Online metadata (as well)?

    I was reading through the Becta LP Functional Reqs and Tech Specs docs. It seems that SPS 2007 with SLK meets most of them, and the rest could be achieved through third party web parts for reqs such as attendance info.

    Yes you are correct about 2007 and SLK.

    You can use sites and workspaces (another name for sites). These can be populated with a calendar, task lists, discussion board, document storage, links to websites, a link to assignments if using class server but if you are 2007 then you can put the online activities from SLK on to the page.

    What would be nifty would be to track activity on the site, so you know what the student has been doing!

    You can limit access to the site and restrict permissions.

    I am doing that, one sub-site per subject, and they put worksheets, schemes of work etc on it, need to play with the testing thing to see how we make our own and assign it etc but once that is worked out it should be good.

    Another way would be for staff to provision their own site. Create a couple of subject or class templates. Train staff to provision!

    On second thoughts best to do it yourself!

    There is a developer who is working on taking users from MIS and setting them up in sharepoint classes. I can pass his details on.
