29% decrease

The months of May and June 2020 accumulated 172 answers, while the months of May and June 2021 accumulated 122 answers.

This is a 29% decrease, so we are back to the numbers of year 2019, but yet with more schools in production (3% more compared to 2020).

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.

Free speech assistant

The new Mozilla foundation project, Common Voice, allows anyone with a microphone to record his voice reading short sentences.

This to build a free database (CC0 license) which will allow to build free speech recognition tools.

Nowadays, only tech giants provide this technology: Siri (Apple), Cortana (Microsoft) and Google Now (Google), but this essentially serve their economic interest, not ours.
