As schools across the country are starting to settle down into a new year I thought it would be good to share the new features we have added to our SharePoint 2010 Learning Platform. Many of the new SharePoint solutions which I will be showing over the next fortnight have been developed at Twynham School for up to a year . Although all five new features have been made live over the summer for the return to work all our developments follow a tried and trusted methodology. We have always focused on a long cycle of testing and trialing with our end users to rapidly improve our SharePoint educational developments. By the time we go live with new SharePoint features we can be sure that they are fully working and meet the needs of our staff and students. A number of the features can be seen below in our updated gateway which is fully SharePoint 2010. 

The new SharePoint 2010 educational features I will be covering over the next few weeks are:

  1. SharePoint School Calender
  2. SharePoint Rewards System
  3. SharePoint Room Booking System
  4. SharePoint Home Drive Web Part
  5. SharePoint CPD (Continuous Proffesional Development) System

To start this session tomorrow I will be looking at why we rejected the standard SharePoint 2010 calender and how we approached producing a bespoke solution to support the day to day running of the school.
