  • Moodle - an open source, course management system
  • SIMS.net - a management information system designed for schools

  • Microsoft SharePoint - a collaborative portal technology

ICT expert Matthew Tosh puts the resources through their paces in the studio test lab before seeing some of them in action in schools.
