Things I learned today.
- Google wrote Google maps with asp.net and SQL.
- adding AJAX roll over data to a web client helps to increase scalability.
- Although you don't need any software to run a web client some how you still need a SQL server on the client.
- websites can be ergonomically designed!
Pinnacle Web does not require any software installation, local client,
special downloads, or plug-ins, saving districts time and money in
initial purchase costs and maintenance. Built using the same AJAX
technologies employed by Google Maps, the gradebook provides users
smooth scrolling, instant response rollover information, smart menus
with drop-down options, and immediate, real-time information.
+ A new ergonomically designed interface, which reduces training requirements
+ Expanded mobility for educators, requiring access to only the Web and a SQL server
