Have pity on a poor school ;)
We can't afford lesson monitor, but really want to automate class registration - for every period through the day.
We're trialling PCs on every desktop, starting with one faculty, emailing to the registration person a list of absent students every lesson.
This is hard enough to monitor for just a few users, and will be impossible when everyone joins in.
[Currently students are pulled out of lessons to go around all classes to collect paper forms from teachers.]
Can anyone help me work out how to do this?. What we need to do is see at a glance who has returned the information, and a way for staff to enter a list of pupil names.
- any more than that and I think we're re-inventing the wheel. They can buy Lesson Monitor if they want the works.
I'm thinking a local [to the registration person] PC access database and web server [but am wary of problems with access]. Something dumped on a share would be perfect. Dunno erm ...help!
