    Sharepoint 2010 with Sharepoint Learning Kit - New Setup

    Hello,

    we have recently just setup a new Sharepoint 2010 deployment which seems to working ok (still developing it a bit at the moment!). We have been looking at Sharepoint Learning Kit for some time now and was just wondering how others have got it setup. I have looked at some things online at it says the best way is to have a site per class and then add the appropriate students/staff to that site. Surely there is a lot of administration overhead here.

    Is there anyway this can be done automatically without having to buy andy additional software. I have read that you can use Excel to provision users to these sites.

    My main question is how can we setup SLK to work efficiently and without much manual administratrion overhead.

    Thanks.

    You will be able to get the necessary permissions set. Take a look at SalamanderSoft Limited

    With the average sized secondary school having many hundreds of classes, good luck with creating class sites for all of those manually! Richard Willis of SalamanderSoft (link above) has a neat way of extracting the information from SIMS, creating all the class sites automatically and sorting the relevent permissions. I suggest like the OP you make contact

    .
    There is a sample in the SLK source code called ProvisionFromExcel. If you download the code it's in slk/slk/samples/provisionFromExcel.

    I haven't looked at it for a couple of years, but it can do the the basic provisioning. There's no documentation, but you should be able to work out the input format from the source code and the sample input xls.
