  1. Happy Birthday to you

    by , 14th September 2013 at 09:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    Did you know that your MIS can help remind you of those really important dates?

    Why not add the "Todays Birthdays" widget to your dashboard and set the parameters just to look at your Form/Tutor/Registration group.

    Btw, the widget only looks forward 7 days and the highlighted row is the current day.

  3. My iHoliday...

    , 28th August 2013 at 07:30 AM
    So - I have just come back from my holiday in Italy (Sorrento). I thought I would blog about how technology helped my holiday, as without it, I don't know where I would have been!

    So - my iHoliday started with online check-in, through the Expedia app on my iPhone - I booked the holiday through this company, and I was enlightened to hear an airport "Ding, Dong" noise the day before we ventured to Heathrow Terminal 4. This sound was alerting me to the fact that it was ...
  4. The problem and a Solution with interactive whiteboards

    by , 14th August 2013 at 10:40 PM
    Let me start by saying that I love regular analog marker whiteboards. They are great and my handwriting on them is much better than on paper. I love to have a room with two or three ten-foot marker boards to fill up for my lectures. There are a couple of downsides to this though:
    1. Rarely are there three 10' whiteboards in a lecture room
    2. Eventually you are forced to erase and start over
    3. This is not a great venue for distance learning via a camera

    On top of these three issues, ...
  5. Roll Call with Extra Column

    by , 6th August 2013 at 09:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    "Yes, we know Progresso can easily take registers, but we want a paper version because we've not given our teachers access yet."

    A good point made here, and Progresso's roll call maintenance feature makes quick work of bulk entry from the completed forms.

    Also, because this question came from a primary school, we added the option of an additional column to be included (such as Lunch choice).

  6. ICT Tip #57 - Summer Surprise

    by , 17th July 2013 at 10:37 AM
    Sorry for the missed weeks - we launched a cashless catering system that has eaten all of my time.

    We now find ourselves in the last week of term, when no-one can be bothered to do any learning, staff or students, so there didn't seem much point in sending out an IT tip. I thought I'd send something slightly different out instead: ICT Tip 057 - Strawberry & Cinnamon Torte.doc

    (This is why we've skipped forward in the numbers, because I just sent this one out here. We'll go back to the missed ...

    One of my most frequently performed tasks under Active Directory is creating new users. Every time I do this I used to have to manually set/create the users home folder and ensure they were a member of the appropriate groups and other repetitive things that MS sadly neglected to simplify for Server 2008. This is no longer the case thanks to Active User Manager, a very useful and free tool that I have successfully used

    It's amazing just how easy it is to crack passwords these days, Nate Anderson from ArsTechnica a self confessed script-kiddie shows in his article just how easy it was to crack 4,000 passwords in the space of a minute!

    • Include mixed cases, letters, number, symbols
    • Change passwords regularly
    • Avoid names especially of people you know
    • And don't repeat old passwords

    All the things you would find ...
  9. Manage Engine vs Microsoft System Center 2007/2012

    by , 4th July 2013 at 12:07 AM
    Hi there just interested if anyone has used Manage Engine Desktop as opposed to SCCM???? I find SCCM clunky and time consuming at the best of times and found that Manage Engine has a lot to offer. Also I'm using a product to edit .exe to msi.... msi package builder and have fond this to be useful as we have a lot of software. I'd be happy to hear what others are using for deploying software and images as I find SCCM a little too heavy at times. Don't get me wrong I do ...
  10. What do you do when your Office 365 password falls out of sync?

    by , 30th June 2013 at 04:54 PM
    I've had a strange issue occur during my testing of Office 365 prior to launching it and that is several users once activated have had their password fall out of sync, including my account.

    I'm almost certain it is related to the activation of an account which is rather a pain really because you need to activate and account in order to use it. While I investigate it further, I have managed to find a helpful solution elsewhere courtesy of this KB2855271 Password synchronization troubleshooting guide for Office 365 ...
