We've had about 300 attendees so far for the first three webinars for school network managers, and we've got five more coming up on System Center for network management, and then Richard is changing the topics and we're heading towards some cloud-services for network management (intrigued?).

Here's the next ones in the System Center series of webinars:

System Center Essentials 2010

For schools managing less than 500 PCs and 50 servers, System Center Essentials (SCE) provides a comprehensive management solution where perhaps the entire suite might be a little excessive.

SCE provides a unified solution with a single console for managing a broad range of tasks across your physical and virtual servers, clients, hardware, software, and IT services.

Tuesday November 9th 10:30-11:30
or Thursday November 11th 10:30-11:30

System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2

System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) lets you see how your IT system is running, from your servers right down to individual desktop computers enabling Operations and IT Management teams to identify, and resolve issues affecting the health of distributed IT services – before they become problems. SCOM can monitor both your Microsoft on non-Microsoft environments and therefore provide a unified solution across the entire campus.

Microsoft partner Inframon will be presenting this session and will be available to answer any of your questions.

Tuesday November 16th 10:30-11:30
or Thursday November 18th 10:30-11:30

System Center Service Manager 2010

System Center Service Manager is a Service Desk solution providing incident and problem resolution, change control, and asset lifecycle management. By unifying knowledge across the System Center suite, Service Manager helps you adapt to your eve changing network requirements while reducing cost and helping you fix problems quickly.

This session, presented by our partner Silversands, will provide a good overview of the key functionality of the product – and give you chance to get your questions answered.

Tuesday November 23rd 10:30-11:30
or Thursday November 25th 10:30-11:30

Windows InTune

This webinar will give you a glimpse of the future of cloud based PC management. Windows InTune is currently in beta, and provides a cloud-based system that includes PC management, malware protection, windows upgrades and remote control. This could potentially be a great solution if you are managing a number of organisations, or distributed IT systems (for example, one network manager managing multiple primary schools, or remote university departments or learning outreach centres of a college)

Tuesday November 30th 10:30-11:30
or Thursday December 2nd 10:30-11:30
