Experience Level: Expert
I need a program that will be used in an educational setting.

The students\' task is this: to complete a series of timed events within an overall set period of time (usually a working day).

What is required is a program that will generate a dynamic display that can be shown on a large screen, to display the elements/information shown in the attached jpg file and described below.

Students will watch the information displayed, to see how they/their group are doing in the task and whether they need to speed up or compromise in order to complete the day\'s work in time.

Students do NOT interact with the display apart from viewing the screen as a source of information.

Only the program operator (tutor) operates the program and hence affects the display from his/her PC.

There is no need for any networking or logins.

Main Required Features:

1. A grid list of Events, fully editable by the program operator (tutor), 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 (described in 1 above), 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 students are 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 (x1)or at an Accelerated Speed (x2, x4, x16, etc).

4. The program operator (tutor) decides when an event has been successfully completed and steps the program on to the next event in the grid.

5. The program operator (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 program operator (tutor) for them to either accept or disregard them.

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