A member of SLT wants me to create a program that when double clicked will send an alert to SLT and Head of House laptops when a student needs to be removed from class.
I haven't touched programming in 13 years, so what would the best programming language to learn to achieve this? I would like to learn several languages including a web-based language for some other projects I have in mind also.
How easy would it be to extract data from our MIS (SIMS) into this program?
My idea is the teacher opens the program either selects the teachers name, class room, and student (this data would have been extracted from SIMS) or enters the information manually into text boxes (probably easier) the teacher clicks send. This brings up a flashing box on the SLT and HOH laptops with the information entered.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
