I am in the process of setting up a virtual learning environment using SLK to manage users and resources etc. The company I work for plan to offer this as a solution to schools in Ireland.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what is the best way to categorise the entities in the system. There will be teachers and students, I suppose these will correspond to "people". There will also be classes, and modules or subjects.
Students are grouped in terms of classes of course. Should I represent classes as groups?
What would be the best way to represent the subjects/modules such and English, Maths etc? I considered setting these up as sites, or subsites of the main site collection. I was considering setting up indivudual schools as site collections eg /sites/castleknockcollege.
I have set up a few schools like this already while testing.
Any help, comments or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
