Looking for Case Studies

Hi Alexander,

I am currently in the middle of deploying an Open Learning Lab with Edubuntu
at my school (as I know are a few others on the list) so I don't have a lot
of answers for you at this point. Give me a month or so and hopefully that
will change. You can see what I've done for adding Edubuntu MiniLANs to
individual classrooms from my presentation slides at hartmanbot.com though.
This is something I've been rolling out since about October and the slides
tell the story down to the rough budget. The situation at my school is
probably different from your site as I am forbidden from touching anything
inside of the walls and had to get creative with servers and clients, but
you'll see what I mean on the slides. Let me know if you get a questionnaire
together or need further clarification. Cheers! -joe

> Initial Goals of your Project.
> Budget (if possible, I know this might be construed as sensitive data).
> Size of deployment (number of thin clients, servers, network equipment).
> Hardware Specification for above.
> Training Needs (to use the new system)
> Pit Falls (did you have any problems which were not anticipated during the
> project plan)
> Was the project successful (did you meat your original goals, if you had
> to make compromises where were they and what was the overall effect)
> Any other data which you may feel is important, please feel free to
> include.
> You can either email on core.ldf at gmail.com or just reply to this list (as
> I am sure the info will be useful to others in the project planning stage)
> I may setup an online questionnaire later this week as well for people to
> complete.
> Thanks for your time.
