Re: [school-discuss] Open Source grade book programs
Just because somecan *can* use a stand-alone grade book app doesn't mean
they should. It's time to think big-picture. What we need is a database
with one list of students, one list of teachers, one list of classes, and
co-operative modules that understand how the database works. A teacher
should be able to move from lesson plan to calendar to testing to grades
and attendence, by little more effort that a Jedi hand wave.
Notice I said modular. There could be any number of gradebook apps. One for
Windows, two for the Mac, and three for Linux and FreeBSD. Take your pick,
they all operate on the same data.
No offense, John, but the days of stand-alone anything are over.
