Out Of The Box Sharepoint (?)

Attach a(ny) document to a SLK assignment.

The current release does not allow students to attach a document to the assignment to be submitted.
There is a patch to the SLK (currently being evaluated) that allows students to attach any document to the assessment. When the instructors review the assessment they will see a paperclip against each students name. Clicking on the paperclip will open up a list item containing the attachments.

How to implement SLK

Filed under: Education, Learning Kit — Tags: , — Peter Kruisman @ 10:55 am
Sharepoint Learning Kit.
Today I read the posting Sharepoint in School – Best organisational practice from http://www.codeplex.com/UserAccount/UserProfile.aspx?UserName=jrubinstein  See also THIS announcement.
The eyeopener was that the SLK manages the read rights on document libraries when assignments are set for users in a site that is not hosting these document libraries:
  • In one site setup assignment libraries
  • There is no need to grant ‘students’ access to the(se) site(s) with learning content.
    With this setup the school has a assignment repository
    ?!Not diserable for formative assignments: students cannot assign assignments to themselves.
  • SLK teacher or… chooses an assigment:
    Assign it to the students in siteX.
    To resolve the criteria for siteX:
    – who are the SLKlearners?
    – who are the SLKteachers?
  • Provioning of this scenario? READ the SLK posting and have attention to “automated system for updating teachers and their classes” and visit http://www.salamandersoft.co.uk
