Activity 3: Using OpenSIS to Generate Class Lists and Reports
There are many companies competing for a slice of the pie in the Kenya school management system market! Some are propriety, others open but for the purposes of this unit we will investigate OpenSIS for no other reason than the community edition is free. They claim;
"OpenSIS is a free student information system for public and non-public schools built by education professionals. OpenSIS is web-based, open source, and comes packed with features that include student demographic info, scheduling, grade book, attendance, report cards, eligibility, transcripts, parent portal, student portal and more."
Let us put them to the test and see if we can insert some working data and extract some interesting information from this school management system. We are going to access an installation of OpenSIS installed on the KICTCFT server. As the whole class will be in the system be careful to log in using the correct login and password details.
