    Permanent clock displayed on Teacher PC

    Does anyone know if it is possible to permanently display a clock on a computer. So for example if a teacher is playing a DVD or powerpoint on slideshow mode, that a clock can be displayed in the corner?

    I know, I know it is in the bottom left, but with 100 odd classrooms, and one teacher clock out of sync means staff are been stupid and letting students out early.

    If you use the clock gadget, you can right click it and make it so it's 'always on top'.

    Does your school not supply clocks in classrooms?

    Shouldn't they be getting sync'ed to your DC... so it should be no more than 5 minutes in either direction...

    Syncing to the DC should in theory keep all clocks to within 10 seconds of each other...as for the clocks in schools, ours spent a small fortune on radio controlled clocks, but we have never had an early class etc since...batteries get changed at the end of term for each clock, job done!!!

    Do schools not have bells any more that ring at the start / end of lessons?

    A lot don't - it's to stop kids packing up and walking out of the lesson the nanosecond that the bell rings, and undermining the teacher.

    Sorry, forgot this thread.

    We no longer have the bells, Head took them away, not sure why but it would make things easier.

    Clocks we have are radion controlled however in some parts of the building this does not work, and teachers will say it is not their job to sort them out.

    so I am still looking for an XP App/Gadget to display above all windows open a clock showing the time.

    Have you tried ClocX - Free analog clock for Windows desktop ? It might do what you're after.
