Re: change to - Fedena for universities Re: [school-discuss] Moving Schoolforge Forward

Thanks Unni

Would like to know whether the University will have more than one School/College under it spread across different campus geographically.

yes... Â 9 colleges/faculties (1 Âuniversity) Âwithin Â30km of each other

What all things you want to localize? I guess language won't be a problem for Laos.
to be honest they could probably use the system in English, but I assume they will needÂUnicodeÂinput so that they can type in Laotian language for names and places. Â

In my experience, most needed localization/customization will be examination and grading related, which you can do yourself if you have expertise in Ruby on Rails or hire an ROR developer.

I am not a programmer Âbut I would guess we can find a local developerÂcapableÂon RoR.. ÂI'll ask around for that one.
