    Light Relief

    Not really a FFS so put it here:

    I informed all teaching staff by email about a link to a revision planner site (probably picked it up from this site). Many Staff said thanks but one individual (SMT) took it further. Welcome to the Twilight Zone!

    Email to Staff:

    I came across this web site MyRevisionPlan which you may find to be of use to students.

    Individual to me:

    {name], this looks interesting. I am unclear as to the security of student data that might be uploaded and whether it remains with the school or is stored elsewhere. I would need to know this before we out it on our site, also, the admin. implications for [exams Officer]. Could you find out more please? Thanks. [name]

    I'm pretty sure I didn't mention anything about putting it on any site, but anyway, I reply:

    All data is stored off site, there are no links to the school. [exams officer] does not need to be involved at all as all exam dates are taken from the various examination boards directly.

    Students register themselves. I only mentioned it to staff as a possible alternative to aid students plan their revision if they felt it would help.

    Individuals reply:

    [name], Put it on the VLE as a link, it could prove of value to students planning their revision. Thanks. [name]



    Isn't that what I said in my original email? (Less the VLE link)



    Well I thought it was funny

    He's probably getting it from the bit that says student data can be automatically populated from your MIS.

    Looks like a nice site and might take a closer look when I've got 10 mins.

    We still have the link in our VLE, it seems some students use it.
