    We have a VLE coded entirely in vb asp - so it is possible.

    Re: PHP or ASP.NET

    I would say ours is heavily based on the Web 2.0 ideal - all staff have the ability to add resources, our students have blogs and can hand assignments set for them in electronically. No one person puts everything into the system - in fact now that I have written it I will probably have very little to do with it in terms of populating it.

    But I would have though things like Moodle would qualify for this too, plus anything based on sharpoint services or similar.

    O yes i like it.
    Do you mind if i pick your brains then?

    The problem i can see myself having is whats the easiest way of getting the students details in the database and what layout should the table follow if any?

    You help would be much appreciated. (and rewarded)

    Pull it directly out of the MIS. We modified CMIS database and used the SQL integration tool in moodle

    Re: PHP or ASP.NET

    Because we host our website / extranet / VLE in house we have a live link into our CMIS database using SQL.

    This means that the second assessment data or student changes are made in the main CMIS system they are reflected on the VLE.

    Zero maintenance! (my favourite phrase)

    The student records database is there particular fields that need to go into an SQL database.

    I agree also. Or find some other already existing web software and modify it for use in school(s)

    link into our CMIS database using SQL.
    is that sort of thing possible with sims?

    Re: PHP or ASP.NET

    @Plugged in - if you are going to maintain a seperate database to your MIS system then the fields you need to generate in your SQL database are basically the fields you want to be able to pull out and display in your VLE.

    So First name, second name, pupil ID no, Year group, form etc. would all be usefull.

    But before you go looking at what data you need to pull out you need to have a good think about what your VLE is going to be used for and therefore what data is going to be needed. Are you going to want to filter out content based on year groups, Key stage, Attainment levels, attendance levels etc.
