2 2 Programme Progress Common themes –Difficulty in producing use cases Too little too late? –Difficulty with vendors Communication Keeping to timescales Willingness to participate –Despite initial promises –Complexity Much greater than most had imagined –Staff Organisational pressures –All have full time jobs

3 3 An overview The JISC perspective –The need for conformance testing arena to achieve plug and play –Addressing working with vendors as a matter of priority Being addressed at strategic level –Recognise need for support for FE projects in particular Lack of research culture Lack of available staff

4 4 Whats happened to Northern Ireland Unable to fund any programmes within SWaNI timescales –Procurement of single MIS/SIS –Supplier unable to commit to projects whilst rolling out to 16 institutions What are we doing for the sector? –Plans to provide targetted workshops in preparation for interoperability and the development of appropriate use of the VLE within the sector –Workshop materials will become a national resource for RSCs

This is a funded stream –External consultants Awaiting interim report following all project visits Reporting –Not evaluative –Not in enough depth –Not technical enough –Constrained by form? –Consideration of final report
