Unfortunately, there weren't many vendors who could get the job done then. And, for a school district to build its own data warehouse was cost prohibitive! The cost of hiring a database administrator (DBA) is around $85k...
Here is a diagram that tries to capture what a data warehouse might look like...what am I missing? What should be added?
By the way, I made this graphic organizer using Idea Sketch on my iPad...I am pretty picky about graphic organizer apps and I was pleased at how easy it was to use. By paying $3.99 for an in app purchase, lot more features opened up!
Some of my favorites:
- Export image, PDF, svg formatted files to Dropbox and other places (not googleDrive yet)
- Import text copied from other apps
- Switch to outline view
Some features I wish were available:
- Export to google drive
- Easy edit of idea sketch title (I couldn't figure it out!)
- Share to twitter (Facebook share is already available)
Kudos to the developers!
