    Re: Content Manager/Technician

    Hi all.
    I am a VLE coordinator.
    My role involves looking after the enrollments, the course set up and the maintainance of a Blackboard 7 installation.
    For this I need a reasonable knowledge of SQL server, a bit if IIS and server stuff and some web development to understand how things are working (or not)
    We have around 6000 students with about 100 fully active courses on the VLE.

    I would expect to ask for 22k onwards.

    If you are looking at moodle you will need somone with good web skills, such as PHP and MySQL.
    For 1000 students you will need maybe a .5 style amount of time to manage it. Just day to day stuff like changing passwords, setting up new courses enrolling users etc.

    As for developing materials and liasing, we have a couple of people in our team. An elearning manager, a full time web deve and me as the VLE and web dev person.

    Lots to think about there!!!

    Thanks Dave - it's about time you appeared I don't suppose you have a job description for any of those roles do you?

    In a secondary school the password changing would not be such an issue as we'd probably tie that in with AD for the students and possibly for the courses as well seeing as our population is not as fluid as yours is.

    Re: Content Manager/Technician

    My job description involves html, asp, asp.net, vb.net, sql and few other bits like training teachers on its usage.
    Will dig it out for you if I can find it!!!

    AD is a good option, now that we have out server inside the domain (!?) we will be able to tie it all together a bit, but doing each course doesnt work for us as so many courses have shared units!!

    On a slightly different note - anyone looking at implementing a VLE should look at the BECTA pages for it. It has a lot of useful guidance you can put in front of the Head Teacher & SMT
