for Schools & Business
Lil' Byte Softstuff has been
working closely with several businesses and school
systems to produce a series of programs that will
enhance their web sites by providing an integrated
experience for their users.
The Online series of programs is the
result of these efforts.
We developed a calendar system that was easy to
administer, was customizable, and was easy
to use. It is one of the few available
that can be hosted either on Microsoft or Linux server
platforms. Different calendars can be
assigned to each user, a personal calendar
is provided, announcements can be shown
globally, and the colors can be
administratively controlled. Log In
can be required to view a calendar and email
notifications of any changes can be offered.
A bulletin board
system has been developed that matches the
look and feel of the calendar to create a
unified web experience.
A series of modules have been developed that can be used
independently or as a group to provide a
unified web experience for staff, parents,
and students. The goal of this work
was to provide easy interaction with the
public to enhance the connections with the
Modules developed include:
A Calendar: This closely
resembles the business module but that is
tailored for schools and includes the
ability to provide lunch menus, sports
schedules, and separate calendars for
Elementary, Jr. High, or Senior High.
Important announcements can be added that
display on all calendars. Log in can
be required to view specific calendars.
Curriculum: This module will
display the course descriptions for all
school offerings so that the public can
better understand what is being taught.
Homework: This module allows
the teachers to easily post homework
assignments so that they are viewable by
parents and students. No more excuses
for missing work because the student
"forgot" what was assigned!
Eligibility Center: This
module makes tracking and changing student
eligibility easy from any computer.
Parents can request that accounts be
provided so that they can track their own
children's status and can be automatically
emailed when that status changes. This
module requires log in.
Transfer Center: This module
has been development to track student
placement for remediation or discipline.
For schools having a "remediation period"
this allows easy scheduling of students as
well as the ability to know where each
student is assigned that day. It is
possible to also allow parents to be able to
track their own children so that they know
how immediately of any potential problems.
This module requires log in.
Bulletin Board: This is the
same module used for businesses where boards
can be created for either public or private
Sports Module: This module
allows the athletic director and coaches to
easily maintain all information regarding
the sports program such as: schedules,
results, rosters, and records.
