SharePoint Study Manager Overview

Study Manager for SharePoint logotype The development of Study Manager, our SharePoint Solution for online training, will soon be finished. Study Manager is a sponsored kalmstrom.com Solution, requested by teachers who want to add self-correcting exercises and tasks to SharePoint and supervise their students' work with them.

Take advantage of SharePoint
Many companies and organizations use SharePoint for cooperation and sharing, so SharePoint was the obvious platform when I was asked to develop a learning management system. Using SharePoint as the base means that Study Manager will be easier to understand and learn.

In the manual we describe how such customizations can be made, and there is much more information in the SharePoint Tips articles on kalmstrom.com

Even if we have made use of as much standard SharePoint functionality as possible, the development of Study Manager has been a large-scale undertaking. I am glad that the kalmstrom.com developers and testers are so skilled and know SharePoint so well that we could take on this development commission.

Study Manager documentation
The documentation of Study Manager has also been an extensive task, as everything had to be created from scratch. My mother Kate and Rituka Rimza have done the major parts, and now the manual is almost finished and the slideshow is displayed here below.

Several video demonstrations are also nearly completed, and the web pages are coming together nicely. Soon everything will be ready for the Study Manager release.

If you want to know more about Study Manager before the QA team gives thumbs up, take a look at the slideshow and read about Study Manager in my earlier blog posts:
