Office 365 for sharepoint VLE & Email?
My school have been let down quite impressively by a (big) company who were tasked with providing them a VLE.
I had a quick look into things and offered up office 365 as a possible solution, and while they're at it using the hosted email solution there.
I'm assuming this might be a common route as from what I can see this is possibly free (or at least low cost) for educational organisations.
I'm after any views on this as an option and ideally experiences that might speed up me being able to implement it as we've been let down quite badly.
Also any technical considerations? Eventually pupils may be using office 365 for their emails so any internet connection requirements? And is a backup a concern or is that all left to microsoft?
Also if anyone has any links to info for getting your head around sharepoint fast it'd be really appreciated!
The company that dealt with this made 'some' good progress on their vle (also sharepoint based), I'd like to replicate some of it - can it easily be exported to another sharepoint site?
Thanks in advance,
