We've got a kid in the teaching office doing some work right now..well, should be..I keep taskkilling the little sod as he's sat on the TTS online broadcast system again.
He's desperate for a bit of cake..our HOD had a crack at baking, and he's baked a dept. sized coffee cake.
He's begged in so many ways..we've had him go and tell the IT Teachers they're "the best ever", we've had him take printing to staff, and now he's begging to be "our heron"..
When I enquired WTF he was on about, he said "You know...Heron boy? Does all the running about?"...
Sigh..do you think he meant "errand boy"? I beyondexec'd him to dictionary.com..

Nice. Its better when you can get them to work with sweets rather than threats of violence.

Threaten with both! A family size bar of Dairy Milk round the face hurts like hell. Or the Christmas edition Toblerones... Or...

I've had a comedy moment with this little gem of a conversation before:
"Do you want to be a gopher?"
"I'm not dressing up as any kind of animal for you weirdos!"
I laughed my arse off.

Indeed you can..
Our parent academy is Thomas Telford School - and they have an "online broadcast" that they use for inter-school announcements, as well as making it available from their site over the net..things like "heads message of the day", lost and found announcements, star pupil bits etc etc.
They have some SERIOUS TV quality kit to do it as well..we're going to try and make a similar thing with "normal" mortal kit..
www.ttsonline.net <- their website.

Ok, my site needs an overhaul stat.

Bear in mind that as well as the tech team, they have a webdev team and a "flash engineer" as well...but then they do sell their online curriculum to schools..heh.
Its nice, but certainly the OLC isn't cross browser friendly..it breaks quite badly in Firefox. I think our version is a bit old now though.
The broadcast kit is immense...it's literally TV class equipment..the camera is a huge "BBCesque" jobbie..impressive, I grant you, but..overkill in a way.
Although I do salute the "moving to electronic media" bit..I only wish WE could drag the staff into it..we waste SO much paper with staff briefings and so on..
