    Re: Class is in session

    Couldn't you use something like FrontPage or share an Outlook Calendar or use Sharepoint Team Services out of the box to do this?

    Class is in session

    I'm inquirying for a friend (how many times have we heard this?) in Human Resources. They started offering various training classes and are looking for a better solution for folks to sign up on-line (via Intranet) for various classes scheduled for different days and times. There would also have to be some type of functionality to track the number of individuals who sign up for a class for any particular day as the class size is limited and prevent overbooking.

    Any suggestions or recommendations?
    Thanks,
    John

    We use Sharepoint out of a $90 box to set up a site for a computer club and it seems to have the functionality you would want, but I'm not sure when you mention Human Resources if you are talking about a large number of people and then your milage may very with these methods or it may need some more integration with a server.

    Re: Class is in session

    What kind of classes? Individual registration and testing of skills adds quite a bit of complexity, compared to a "read all this stuff and sign off" module. If the server is adequate, you don't need to limit the number of attendees, unless you want a human interaction program. My company has been looking at what's out there in order to develop our own stuff, and the range of US prices is "interesting".
