John Tim Denny, my advisor, has been working on this new venture called “Cambodia Education Management Information System”, an open source system – licensed under the GPL, “for the collection, integration, processing, maintenance and dissemination of data and information to support decision making, planning, monitoring and management at all levels of an education system.” – a.k.a School Information System (SIS).
Although provided free of charge when development is done, the system is now in a closed beta phase so I can only use screenshots as demonstrations. Here they are:
In future, CAMEMIS will also be released as a Moodle/Joomla/KOHA extension, which means: a SIS embedded with an LMS, a CMS, and a Digital Library Catalog system, depending on each organization’s needs. That being said, we can employ CAMEMIS as infrastructure for a School 2.0
The project is being developed by a team of expats and local Cambodians, employing a wide range of technologies: Java, Ruby, jQuery, Ext GWT, etc.
Tim is asking the programmer to make translation easier so the project can be localized elsewhere, and they’re also looking at better names for the project. CAMEMIS doesn’t sound that juicy.
Any suggestion? And do you think it’s portable to Vietnam?
