    Sharepoint Learning Kit Woes

    Hi All,

    Been using SLK for a couple of months now and some of the early tests show it is a good product that is.....

    Has anyone worked out how students return the work the get sent to them?

    I have sorted the permissions (taechers are SLKIntructors and students are SLKLearners) I have versions enabled the doc storage library and have been able to send documents out to a group of students.

    When the student opens the word doc to edit it.... what next??

    I must be missing something as I would assume all they need do at this point is close it and the document is returned but this does not seem to be the case.

    Anyone have any ideas how the workflow is supposed to work.

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit Woes

    I have been playing with moss 2007 with SLK for about a month. If you use scorm complaint content then the SLK will allow SLKlearners to begin the assignment, save where they are and then submit the assignment thru the SLK. How it should work!

    However if you are using non scorm complaint content i.e. Word doc then it will not work. The workaround I have done is as follows. Teacher Uploads and assigns the students thru the SLk. Then the student goes to the SLk and downloads the Assignment to their home directory. They complete the assignment then they upload the doc in the doc library. Then they goto the SLk and click submit on that assignment. The teacher then has to open up the document, mark it and grade it on the SLK.

    This means you have to give SLKlearners the right to upload docs but not delete.

    If you want to make your docs scorm complaint then you need an authoring tool.

    Hope this helps

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit Woes

    I'm glad its not me thats thinking hmmm this should work but isnt! Microsoft Learning Essentials V2 has a free SCORM creation tool in it for Word, Excel and Powerpoint, so I thought I would make a true false test in it for a sample for demoing the Learning stuff to HOD's and can I get it to work, can I buggery!

    Its looking more like the art of solitare for demo then go quiet and embarrased when they say so how do I make my test into a self marking learning lesson!

    Has anyone any ideas on how to get it all to work with whats part of Learning Essentials - http://www.microsoft.com/learningess...s/default.mspx is a link to the learning essentials stuff. Word of warning with it, it does an Office Genuine Check thingy, and it throws up that any 60 use demo of Office 2007 means in its eyes you have illegal software and refuses to let you download, so just a warning for you, I just downloaded mine on the server, its fine on install doesn't do any checks on install just download.

    Re: Sharepoint Learning Kit Woes

    Has anyone actually got an authoring package to work. I downloaded the eXelearning one and created a lovel lesson with quizzes and all manor of interactive elements.
    But then when i submitted it, SLK didn't report any results. It said it had been submitted but had no score against it.

    Any ideas.

    And does anyone know what they used to create the Solitaire demo?

    Try myudutu... best free content development platform we've found so far for SCORM resources

    Tried eXe... quite buggy but managed to get some content out of it
    MOS Solo... didn't install properly
    Reload... not exactly user friendly

    udutu | online learning simulations made easy

    Nice web interface and free up to 50 pages... if your lesson is longer than that just split into two packages

    Not that up on sharepoint atm but at BETT i saw a demo of MOSS2010 and students can collaborate on a word document at the same time or individually.
    They don't need to have Office installed at home to do this.
    i'm not sure how that fits in with SLK and pushing assignments but if it was just a simple document there's no need to push and pull anymore. but what do i know!
    it does require the latest sharepoint install though, so you can't play unless you upgrade.
