Description

Experience Level: Expert
NB THIS IS A PRE-SELECTION PROCESS AND A MORE DETAILED JOB DESCRIPTION WILL BE GIVEN TO ANY SELECTED BIDDERS FOR THEM TO BE ABLE TO SUBMIT A MORE PRECISE BID AND DETAILS OF WHAT THEY IN PARTICULAR COULD BRING TO THE JOB.

This is an Educational Program.

AIM: For students to complete a series of timed events within an overall set period of time (usually a working day).

What is required is simply a display that can be shown on large screen to display the elements shown in the attached file and described below. This is a display that students will simply watch to see how their group is doing in the task. Students do not interact with the display but only view the screen as a source of information. Only the tutor 'operates' the program and hence affects the display from his/her PC.

Main Required Features:

1. A fully editable list of Events, where each Event is given a length of time in
which to be completed, as well as other information.

2. The program works through the list (1), displaying
a) the time left to complete the current Event
b) the overall time left to finish all events in the set period of time
c) whether the student is on target to complete all the tasks for the set period of time, or if they are ahead or behind)

3. The time to complete an Event can either run in Realtime or at an Accelerated Speed.

4. The tutor controls when an event has been successfully completed and steps the program on.

5. The tutor can 'throw in' occurences that effectively either cut down the time
available for an Event or allow extra time for an Event.

6. The occurences in (4) can also be automatically generated from a list of such occurences and offered to the tutor for them to either accept or disregard them.

7. A storeable log is kept of the program's progress.
