Newbie posting...please be gentle with me.
I'm trying to negotiate at my (Japanese) university to get some server space to test out Moodle. When I feel comfortable with it, I will let it loose on a class of (approximately) 50 students next October. The students will be accessing the moodle outside of regular class hours, either on campus or from their PCs at home. I doubt if any more than 5-10 students will be using the system at any one time.
Because of language difficulties (er, mine), I am having to ask another staff member to negotiate the "IT waters" for me at my uni. What can I tell him I need in terms of server space and other requirements so that I can (a) do a test run and experiment with moodle and (b) 'roll it out' for the class disussed above next October?
This not all new to me - I successfully uploaded, modified and am running phpBB on a server in the US, so I'm not completely wet behind the ears, but there is definite dampness when it comes to moodle.
Look forward to your responses.
