What is CryptPad and how can I use it for my classroom?

At rosariosis.com, we loved CryptPad so much we decided to offer it as part of our PREMIUM plan. In association with RosarioSIS you have a complete SIS/LMS solution.

CryptPad apps

  • No need to switch between accounts: your apps in the same place.
  • Collaboration: chat and set access permissions for each document.
  • Ideal for student groups, projects and presentations.
  • Encrypted, privacy friendly and open source. No company led by profit or surveillance motives is spying on your activity.
  • Compared to Moodle, CryptPad is easy to deploy and manage: no account needed!

Focus on 3 apps for educators and students: the Whiteboard, Text editor, and Kanban apps.

Integration with RosarioSIS is simple: share the link to your pad.

Solve and Import your Timetable with FET

At the start of each school year, administrators are faced with a problem: generate the timetable for the whole school. This, done by hand, represents a complex task taking days to meet every constraint.
It is like solving a big equation where variables are classrooms, teachers, subjects, student sections plus time constraints for each of them.

FET, like RosarioSIS, is free software that runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. It is specialized in Timetabling. It solves your constraints and generates your school timetable based on the classrooms, teachers, subjects and student sections you have entered.

Now, how can we import this timetable into RosarioSIS? The Timetable Import module will let you import CSV timetable exports from FET. After import, RosarioSIS will be all set with Course Periods for the new school year.
