In the last of this three part series I look at the power of our SharePoint development for admins. With version 3 of our Online Options site any administrator can edit the complete site including upload of streaming video with complete ease. Check out the video below for a full demo.

GCSE Online Options in SharePoint part 2 of 3

In part 2 of this series I delve into the subject section of the GCSE Online Options site. This area contains all the information students and parents need about individual subjects to make decisions. The video takes you through a slick interface to move between core information to more detail and rich media in the form of video.

GCSE Online Options in SharePoint part 1 of 3

As promised throughout this week I wanted to show a number of videos with new resources and tools which we have been working on at Twynham School. The first is our GCSE Online Options system which we use with students in Year 9 and their parents. A brief overview of the site is shown below.

Later today I will cover the real meat of the site- the subject sections which students review to make their options.

Video week on SharePoint in Education

Well in the madness of educational life it has been a while since I have managed to post a blog here. At Twynham we have been working on a number of new solutions for the school and polishing some well tried and tested solutions that we want to make available to other schools. Each of these pieces of work I will show throughout the week have bespoke elements which are aimed to make your school run more smoothly and make life easier for staff and students or to better inform students and parents. During the week I will be covering a number of tools including a new room booking system and showing our parental engagement toolkit which has been used in Twynham since 2008.

Speaking of videos I thought I would kick of the week with one I didnt produce but could certainly be said to be ‘out of the box’. I hope you enjoy it and it makes you smile. Check out the site each day for real SharePoint Solutions!
