We are a small school looking for an school administrative module to add to our Moodle. It would need to handle the nuts and bolts of our school opperation such as student data, absentee reports, and, if possible, transcripts. Any suggestions?
Oh, then you might want to look at http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=55&rid=4477 which is *Moodle as a Curriculum and Information Management System*
by Jason Hollowell
Hey Ben. Yes, Mary Cooch also directed me to this book. Have you used it or know someone who is? How does it compare to SIMS that England uses?
I haven't used it because we have a home-grown student information system that does well for us. But, I have read the book, front to back. The book builds up to the last chapter, where Hallowell designs the crowning module, which is available, as usual for free.
My copy is in the office, which is where I am not yet. I'll look up the module name later today.
Thanks Ben. I see though that it's 1.9 or later. We are really looking forward to moving up to 2.1. I'll keep it in mind.
