Best free, open source, web-based student information system?
posted by I EAT TAPAS to education (5 answers total)
A non-profit organization I do work for is looking for a free, open-source, web-based student information system for tracking grades, attendance, counseling notes and doing scheduling for their summer educational programs.
Ease of setup and hosting isn't a concern; I have lots of experience on setting up F/OSS database apps on various platforms, and they actually have extensive hosting options I'll be able to use. Ease of actual use tracking student information, on the other hand, is paramount, and I'm finding that aspect difficult to evaluate. They'd prefer to host in house, but external hosting isn't a dealbreaker.
Any experience and/or recommendations, or a pointer to something you feel is an apt comparison?
