One of the programmes I've worked on this year is the creation of EduCoMS. This is a new community site focused on the needs of IT professionals in both higher and further education using Microsoft technologies. It's going to be the site for this community to share knowledge and best practice with peers in the education sector. Over time, there will be news items, case studies and events all targeted towards education
The success of this site has only been possible thanks to the dedication of Eduserv, UCISA, the ESC and several partner universities who have been part of the steering group. The ongoing success depends on the site's community and to help kick start the site there are a number of incentives on offer.
Naturally, it's delivered in SharePoint and is a tour-de-force of some of the functionality available in SharePoint just in case you ever wondered what all the fuss was about.
To access the site please visit www.educoms.net and I look forward to your active participation.
