School Reports

After marking the attempts at poetry written by earnest and self-conscious pupils I should think writing end of term school reports comes a close second in terms of both the cringe and mirth factors. Still, with a system such as Matrep, teachers will no longer have to continuously hand write comments like "must try harder" or "is a disruptive influence" if they add them to the site’s ˈpre-filledˈ feature.  More

Find online and campus degree programs

In a certain month every year the newsagents around the world have been engulfed by students and parents (mostly parents, I might add) waiting for the latest issue of the guide to Universities and Colleges to ensure they collectively choose the most appropriate educational opportunity available.

"The dog ate my homework" just won't wash with Schoolrack

My word how school life has changed! At the risk of giving my age away I was at school in the days before even photocopiers were a widespread part of a teacher’s kit. I can still remember the smell of the duplicating ink on the History hand-outs.  As for the excuses about why a particularly nasty piece of homework was missing well, leaving it on the bus was about as original as I got. It follows then that a site like Schoolrack would have seemed as far away as a manned expedition to Mars but educational software has now got one over the guys at NASA.  More

This app really could keep you out of jail...

As distance learning courses go this is a very interesting one but one that caters for an important need none the less. In this respect I think it does a pretty good job. We live in slightly more enlightened times these days when it comes to some types of crime and for a lot of misdemeanours a brief educational course rather than a spell in prison is often the outcome of a Court hearing. This one, as the title clearly indicates, is aimed at stopping those found guilty of theft from re-offending. The meaning of the word theft in this instance covers the likes of shoplifting and ...  More

How to build a robot - and other stuff...

There are quite a lot of sites around matching people who need information to relevant experts and this follows similar lines to a lot of them. In this case though the emphasis is on gaining instruction so if you want lessons in Arabic or mathematics or perhaps would like to know how to create a Wiki you can search and find an instructor willing to teach you online. Being a two-way arrangement it follows then that you can sign up to instruct or sign up to learn. Anyone looking for instruction can search by the tags or enter a subject or topic name and see if it’s included.  More
