Guest post from Alan Richard’s from West Hatch High School:

If you have ever read my own blog (www.edutechnow.com) or seen any of the posts on here then you will know that I have a passion for cost cutting. In the current climate cost cutting in Schools is very much still on the agenda but I believe it shouldn’t be cost cutting at any cost, there should be an end goal, a clear and obvious benefit for all stakeholders.

So when I was privileged enough to receive my SharePoint MVP in July of this year I started to think how I could use some of the benefits you get as an MVP to spread my cost cutting agenda.

Now one of the big benefits we get as MVP’s is a free live meeting account, so as a start I thought I would deliver a free webinar on my cost cutting project using SharePoint 2010.

The webinar will cover how using SharePoint 2010, InfoPath 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010 I have managed to harness the power of SharePoint to collect and analyse data and reduce the need for paper forms.

The session will cover how to use the three products to create codeless solutions to use online forms to collect data from users and then use workflows designed around your business needs to analyse the data.

At the end of the 1 hour webinar I hope you will go away with a clear idea of how you can bring added value to all the stakeholders in your organisation while also cutting costs – a win, win situation surely.

Here are the time and date details

Thursday, 11th August 2011 | 5:00pm – 6:00pm BST | 9:00am – 10:00am PDT
