    Netbook day to day loaning

    Good morning all,

    I have an idea, but not quite sure how to execute it!

    We have a trolley of 30 netbooks, which students can rock up and borrow for the day.

    At the moment, they sign there name on a sheet against the netbook number.

    I would like to have a computerised booking system, where a student scans their student badge on a barcode reader, then scans the netbooks barcode, and at the end of the day, scans the netbook back in.

    This is mainly an exercise is making sure the little darlings wear their student badges!! No badge, no netbook, that'll learn 'em!

    Anybody done this? or have any suggestions to simple applications that do this already, or where I would start in rolling my own in Access, etc.

    Thanks

    James

    We did this for a time using the library software. The librarian just set the laptops up as books.

    Exactly the same here. Ours are short term loan library books and looked after in the library. The only thing they have on them is the minimal install of the OS (Win8) hooked up to the wifi with internet disabled, AB Tutor Control client installed and a RDP shortcut to the student TS server the only icon on the desktop.

    That makes sense, treat a netbook as a book, BUT we don't have a computerised library!

    So any simple check in, check out library systems anyone know about?

    Thanks
