The goal is to digest their information stored in their SIMS student management software and reconcile it down into a progress graph that is easy to understand at a glance. As we will be writing adapter code to extract and shape data from SIMS, we’ve also rolled in attendance statistics and tracking, as well as the schools contact details.
When we ran our initial workshop on this, it transpired that the best approach was a hybrid application, that the school staff can use on the web, and parents can view on the web or on a mobile. For this reason we identified Phone Gap as a great tool to publish a web application as a cross platform mobile app. Using this we could build one modern, responsive web application and have the Phone Gap software repackage this ready for publishing in the App Store.
