    DropBox

    Does anyone have a system such as dropbox or something similar? At the moment we use Kaleidos but are moving to Sims Learning Gateway but I would like a desktop system to share work from pupils with staff.

    We use just network drives/shortcuts on the desktops with NTFS permissions. If you are interested I can attempt to explain it... I know it is not "software" but it is Free =}

    Similar to above but we setup an ftp site in IIS and using NTFS permissions students can drag and drop work to a drop box for staff through Windows Explorer. Works a treat

    As above plus a script that empties it each evening.

    I'll shortly be putting up a link to a guide about creating dropboxes in sharepoint ... just sorting out with LP+ where to stick it.
