Student files upload options
hey ppl, my district is small. Pre -K to 8th grd. right now we have students sending their files from home and school via their personal email to their teacher's email. I was thinking of setting up a remote connection(term server) just for students to access from home to upload their files. I would like to know what some of you are using for this. Any help is appreciated.

Have you looked at Google Apps?

Or Office 365 as an education license

I used Sonicwall SSL VPN for this in the past. Works a treat.

funny you said that. after I posted this I did some research and Sonic SSL VPN came up. We have the Sonicwall NSA 3500 for our district. Can you explain a little more or post up a link to head me in the right direction? thanks

This is the one i used in the past: Secure Remote Access (SRA) 4200 - SonicWALL, Inc.
There is a demo site here: https://sslvpn.demo.sonicwall.com/cgi-bin/welcome
Did you have any specific questions?

this is probably something I have to find out but do you know if I can do all this with what I have? the NSA 3500? I just want students to access lets say a share which will probably have their teachers name and upload their files to that folder. We are talking about 4th graders to 8th graders. so the simpler the better.

If you just want them to have file access have you had a look at this: Home Access Plus+ Welcome . Very simple from the user prospective as it just allows access to drives you specify through a web application. Lots of users have been having good results with is and its free.

A VLE seems to suit what you want, There are several out there (and moodle does seem to be the popular choice)

Either the above which is Windows based or open Vpn als which Linux based

Moodle wont let you do it out of the box. There is an addon for it, but its very fussy about what the server is running.
