VLE - Sharepoint with Class Server.
I have just taken on a role as a VLE administrator for a school in Barking, Essex.
The idea is to go live this September using MS Sharepoint 2003 with Class Server and integrating CIMS.
This is an exciting role, but we may need as much help as we can.
Are there any schools in London that are using these tools - we would like to see them in action.
Thanks for your help,
SharePoint 2003 and Class Server
Just to echo what others have said, we have had the above setup for 3 years and - though it has served us well - we are planning to either upgrade to 2007 & SLK or go for another platform entirely in the next 6-12 months. Class Server is no longer supported and the engineers from the company who support our SharePoint server are already struggling to remember how 2003 works and telling us how much better 2007 is. If you look for support for CS on the web you'll find that most of the forums are inactive and the Microsoft user forums have actually been closed down.
Going for 2003 and Class Server would be like buying a car that's just gone out of warranty, is less reliable and has fewer features than the new model. Oh, and only a few specialist mechanics can help you fix it if it breaks.:eek:

Today we are having Ramesys (education) coming in today to clarify this for us. To be honest, we would prefer to use SLK and seeing some 'screenshots', they don't look too unsimilar to what we are using at present.
Have you had problems with SP 2003?
Have you used Ramesys?
Do you use SP or CS with your employer?
