    Dont have .sch.uk addresses, if we did i wouldnt be bothered. council emails only, so thats @kirklees-schools.org.uk at the minute then moving to @edukirklees.net once we're on moople
    the admin staff arn't happy as they are going have to redo all signs letterhead and anything else that had the old email address on, which they keep telling me is going to cost a fortune. like i have any real say in the matter, i only found out about this last month,
    google sites is part of moople as well, at least thats what they said at the meeting

    To me it looks like you could achieve exactly the same result as that portal with your own Moodle installation and then have control over the design and be assured that your data isn't being disclosed to third parties...

    So if Google sites is part of Moople and Moople probably uses Googles email and they are adding adverts why not just use Google. It costs about 10 to setup a new Domain or 15 to setup a .sch.uk Domain and your done.

    Not trying to stop you but from my point of view it does seem a bit odd

    so if we dont take it we dont get council email addresses
    Also why do you need CC email address? if you buy a sch.uk or any other domain and use live@edu or Google for education you control you own email.

    Is it only me that looks at it like this, can someone else post a comment.

    They were telling me that they were looking into keeping the @kirklees-schools.org.uk addresses whilst still using the edukirklees.net domain - so tell the admin people not to jump too quickly.

    Well I thought time might be a healer on this one . . .

    What get's me is that every staff member in every school in Kirklees has to login to their new email via a duff looking website, full of content nobody cares about, riddled with primitive bugs.

    One thing I did manage to extract from the website was the amount of staff required to produce this great pile of garbage. Unfortunately I'm unable to visit the 'meet the team' section again due to a bug that prevents me from going back to the home page!

    How primitive can you get?

    Wait, I can do one better . . . these guys haven't even configured their DNS settings for moople.net so only Moople works!!! And every member of staff is expected to login through this site??

    How primitive can you get? Let me know if I'm missing something guys . . .

    No need to if you don't want to. Just go to www google com/a/edukirklees net (I can't post proper links - that's my first post here) to login your Google Apps account.

    Great.

    Maybe you should publicise the link, at least until you get the Moople website sorted out?

    https://www.google.com/a/edukirklees.net

    Having to close the browser to log back into email again isn't acceptable for any users - geek or non-geek. People work within their browser nowadays and the last thing they want to do is close down their browser unnecessarily.

    How about getting http://moople.net/ sorted so it works? Another thing that would save me valuable support time and instill confidence in your portal.

    'dedicated in-school support for specific periods of time'. So you're treading on the toes of other ICT technicians, competing beside them. I guess you guys have a slight upper hand already given that you encourage everyone to login through the portal that advertises your services?

    How about spreading some monopolised love and adding a link to my school support services?

    I tend to agree with the main portal, its clunky and not really very useful to be honest. I just bypass it like mehow said

    Most of my admin staff across my sites havent used the web based stuff anyway, they like their outlook express haha =-)

    Nobody I know uses Moople - I've setup shortcuts to gmail as above, and tell teachers to use tinyurl.com/edukirklees at home. I've yet to see anything useful on moople anyway...?

    It does annoy me that http://moople.net/ doesn't work either - especially as all the newsletters are plastered with the link that doesn't work!

    They only have to do it once, then add to favourites!

    It's a lot easier than telling them to: go to www.moople.net, then login, then click gmail, then click open in new window, then add to favourites...

    I try and include all the links a staff member will need on the school website, that way they only have to remember the school's web address.

    I've never known anybody forget this (yet)

    I've tried the link today and it doesn't work for our members of staff. I've tried 2 sets of credentials but neither work. Just keep getting the error message 'Error: This account is not an administrator, please log in to an administrator account'

    As suggested, I'm using the link:

    https://www.google.com/a/edukirklees.net

    Any ideas?
