    New Member - Quizzing everyone

    Hello everyone, I just stumbled upon this site while doing a search on Google. I saw it and said "I have to join". Its nice to see people sharing the same frustrations as I do. As evil as that may sound.

    I work in the states and have been working all day on finishing up a new intranet for our school system. Now I have a problem, and my brain is fried. I need a name for it.

    Its a basic intranet portal where users will login to have access to forms, a district calendar, files, techtorials, project based learning lessons, links to student folders. The whole deal. However its missing a name. As crazy as this may sound, in my district without it, there may be flames and ashes left. We are the oldest district in my state and we have many teachers who fear change of any kind.

    Any ideas? Also, any suggestions for things that I should definitely put on the site to encourage teacher participation?

    Thanks a bunch in advance,
    Chad

    I am doing the exact same as you. Mine is called it called the staff intranet, how original.

    What is the name of your school? Maybe it can relate to that.

    Mine is for a whole district. Greenbrier is the district.

    Thank you for the response. I think I found a new place to consume my time.

    What about Greenbrier Services Central or GreenBrier Central Services (GCS / GSC) for short, giving an abbreviation to work the logo design.

    @itschad: Where abouts in the state are you? Maybe cleverly include a landmark or mascot?Failing that, Greenbriernet is the obvious choice.

    I am in West Virginia, about 4 hours south west of Washington DC.

    I am thinking Campus Greenbrier? To long?

    G-Net? Its short and easy to say?

    Our school is called Nobel so we simply have NobelNet.

    Wow, thanks everyone for all the thoughts. I think G-Net is the way to go, it does slightly sound like big brother is watching or something. They accuse me of being big brother anyways, may as well live up to the reputation

    Just keep a tight hold on it and make sure it doesn't end up like SkyNet, taking over the planet resulting in nuclear destruction. Then, you'll have to send some kid back in time to save a child (who'll end up being your leader in the future) from some crazed Terminator robot thingy... I might be looking too far into this

    If the teachers fear change why not call it something to comfort them in using it like 'The Olde Greenbrier' or you could have a motto like:

    G-Net
    It's nothing to be afraid of
