A forward thinking local secondary school that has introduced pioneering methods of teaching based on individual learning plans was struggling to cope with the amount of administration involved. Seagrass was brought in to look at how many of the processes involved could be automated and to remove duplication of effort.
A system was developed using Microsoft ASP.NET(c#) and using a Microsoft Jet database which takes information from the main school system SIMS.NET and then provides a web based interface where teachers, tutors and pupils can all login and contribute to their plan. Teachers can write their reports and make future subject level suggestions and then tutors can go through the recommendations with the pupil and build a personalised pathway.
As always, this state-of-the-art system was developed and delivered successfully, within the quoted timescales and budgets.
