Yes, SLK can be a component in the SharePoint 2007 Learning Gateway

SLK was designed from the beginning to be a SharePoint 2007 Solution

what s happening to class server
What’s Happening to Class Server?

Class Server is replaced by SLK, and will be removed from the price list in January 2007

Steps taken to protect Class Server users investment:

  • Class Server content will run on SLK
  • Class Server authoring tools will create SLK compatible resources
  • Professional Development investment preserved by making sure the SharePoint use case is similar (though simplified).
  • Reduced cost access to Class Server licenses until users can migrate.
  • Class Server support will be provided by a Learning Gateway/Class Server specialist vendor for free through 2006, and for a fee after that.

About product support for Class Server

From now until June `06

PSS will continue to support CS4

After June `06

Users worldwide will use an international vendor for Class Server and Learning Gateway support.

  • Support incidents are pre-paid by Microsoft until 12/31/06
  • The same model as EMEA and APAC use on weekends
  • Vendor has years of Class Server and Learning Gateway support experience

Switching to pre-paid vendor support means:

CS4 users will now get Learning Gateway support

The community newsgroup status will not change

Technology Transition Period

Many institutions may not upgrade to SLK & SharePoint 3 for a year or more.

How will we support institutions that want to use Class Server and SharePoint 2 beyond 2006?

After June ’06

For owners of a Class Server – Server license, we will:

  • Waive the requirement for Class Server CALs
  • Allow licensee to replicate and use the Server in perpetuity
  • All licenses and rights are non-assignable
