Open School Admin (OSA) is a Web-based school administration system primarily focused on ease of use and access to school information. It has been in continuous use and development for the past 7 years. It manages all aspects of school administration: student enrollment, class scheduling, mark reporting, attendance, user accounts, and room booking. Through the use of various plugins, it also manages email announcements (including automated attendance notices), government reporting, dorm room management, Alumni relations, etc. It is a standalone application written using a Perl/MySQL back end. It requires a Web server (Apache/Lighttpd tested) and should run out of the box on any Unix system. While OSA itself is very mature, the installation and setup is still a young and evolving process.
Multiple Drop-Down Select Lists Creator is an Ajax script for creating drop-down select lists. Options can be stored in a MySQL database or in a text file on the server. An administration page is provided for composing <option> lists, adding options in <select> lists, modifying options data, deleting lists, and saving and loading lists. Each option can have additional content that is displayed within a separate HTML element.
Trivia Game is a trivia question game script where questions and answers can be stored in external files in XML or JSON format. The game has two levels: in level 1, a list of answers is displayed for each question, and the user must click on the correct answer. In level 2, a text box is displayed in which the user can write the answer. Questions can be asked consecutively or in random order without repeat. A countdown timer can also be given for each question.
HOYRESPIRO is software developed for PEOPLE, a project promoting "smart cities" through rapid implementation, deployment, and uptake of innovative Internet-based services to face present challenges and improve future quality of life. HOYRESPIRO, developed for the pilot city of Bilbao, provides citizens with geo-referenced information about the air quality in and around the city, the pollen levels, the weather forecast, and weather information (updated every 10 minutes). It uses the existing network for environmental control of the city and the indicators developed with the data collected. The network consists of weather stations which measure atmospheric variables related to pollution and levels of pollen in the air.
