    Skipping out number 50 as that was only relevant internally, so on to #51, and continuing a theme from last time as we explain email from first principles. You'd be surprised how many people don't know this: ICT Tip 051 - Reply, Reply All & Forward.doc

  2. ICT Tip #49 - To, CC and BCC

    by , 25th September 2013 at 10:03 AM
    A bit of a delayed start to the term - it all goes mad in the first week or so - but time to get back up and running with IT Tips.

    This week is an educational Public Service Announcement, because no-one seems to know that BCC exists: ICT Tip 049 - To, CC and BCC.doc

  3. Server 2012 can really ruin your day

    by , 24th September 2013 at 11:10 AM
    When it announces that it's going to restart in 15 minutes to complete windows updates. at 10:15. And it's the server that hosts the virtual server with SIMS installed.

    I had thought I had prevented disaster using this guide:

    and then running gpupdate /force

    However, this turned out to be a false hope, as a phone call from reception to tell me that SIMS ...
  4. I see you.... View today's users and their duration

    by , 21st September 2013 at 09:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    Not all data in Progresso is manually entered. What about all that information collected in the logs?

    I wanted to see if I could easily view who was logged on so I built this simple widget which looks at today's users and calculates how long they have been using the system.

    It's surprising what other data is stored, such as the IP address. This gave me the idea to try out the SSRS feature to launch an external URL. So if you click on the IP address a new window will ...

  5. 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.

  7. 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 ...
  8. 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, ...
  9. 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).

  10. 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 ...
