Last week I found something that may be of interest to school and district technology coordinators and CIOs. At the Higher Education West Technology blog I found a link to something called the Education Test Drive. This is a site that lets people “see first-hand how SharePoint and Exchange can be used to develop a learning community within an institution.” I think that most people know about Exchange but SharePoint is a particularly useful but under well-known application that I think has amazing potential on school environments.
There are a number of tutorials there that should be of interest to IT administrators. And the nice thing is that you can run them when and where you have some free time. And I know that finding free time is difficult but not having to travel or to work around someone else’s schedule should be handy for people.
