Miscellaneous Comments The EdWeb distribution is an official version of the central EdWeb service, made available to Units to run their own copy. This is what we are doing so we can restrict access to just Informatics users (where required) and have some other local configuration not supported in the central EdWeb. Beyond that, all end user training material for the central EdWeb should apply to our local copy of the distribution.
