I have been asked as an IT Technician to assist one of the IT Teachers at a residential school I work at to help with an Intranet site (I have had some experience with basic HTML before so thats why I was asked).
The school is a residential school for up to 16 teenagers with learning difficulties and challenging behaviour (a lot of the students have Autism).
So, where am I needing help? well, everywhere really!! The site needs to be user friendly and have minimal daily maintenance but also be able to be viewed on a large touch screen plasma in our entrance hall. The Intranet site will be showing media files/videos of the students doing all the great things we do etc etc but also once pressed will bring up a menu allowing the students to touch a symbol to gain access to three main areas of the site.
- Todays School Timetable - highlighted by time depending on time of day
- Visitors expected at school today (including their picture)
- List of senior management team on site today
For this to work, I feel it should all be run from a calendar script but have no idea which script would be best to use or in which language etc etc etc
(First impression was a PHP Script with a SQL server)
Anyone able to give me any pointers or able to assist me build the site?
Thanks in advance!
