Cluster

An OTB server may be configured as a "cluster", which allows a single OTB server to service multiple institutions, eg a secondary and associated primaries.

Each school can operate as a discrete OTB system, but with additional benefits including:

  • common learning matrix across schools to track pupil progress as a continuum
  • improved pupil data sharing, eg during transition
  • shared document libraries
  • reduced OTB administration for primary staff
