Hi, my first post here - I was hoping to see what people think.
Our (basic) requirements:
- Allow students/teachers to access thier network drives remotely
- Allow teachers to publish resources online (remote access to shared drives)
- Allow collaboration between staff/pupils online
What we've looked at so far:
The preference so far: Frog
I'm struggling to find any products/solutions that are comparable to the features of Frog that address our requirements above. We have very mixed feelings about Frog - it's seems to offer it all, but in reality, will it deliver?
Even if we were told that "Frog is great - go for it", I also need to get 'quotes' from alternative providers for tender purposes.
1) Apart from moodle and sharepoint, and considering the requirements above, can anyone suggest any alternative solutions? What did other people look at (even if you didn't end up using it)? I need to get in touch with some providers for demonstration / quotation purposes ASAP.
2)Apart from the cost, any pro's/con's of Frog would also be appricated at this point.
(I notice that moodle is heavily favoured among forum users. We have/are looking into this, but I'd like to keep conversation away from moodle and other Open Source solutions at the moment)
Thank you in advance for any input anyone has...
