Unity, Active Directory & VLE's
Does anyone have any experience with the Ramesys product UNITY?
We had a presentation this week and it seems it could be useful.
Would suck data out of SIMS and populate AD.
Would allow staff/students access to their H:\ drives remotely.
Would allow parents access to some SIMS data.
We are looking at going down the MOOLDE route for our VLE and not the RAMESYS offering which is ASSIMILATE.
RAMESYS stated that if we went with ASSIMILATE it would populate itself with all the classes/courses from AD.
But can AD hold classes and course information?
With my limited knowledge I thought AD held user accounts, computers accounts and groups. Would it make use of groups somehow?
And if the information is in AD could we not push it out to MOODLE instead?
UNITY does also not offer remote access to other network drives just the users H:\ drive.
Do other schools get round this by placing all content material on the VLE anyway?
