Yarl IT Hub - School Management System Project

There is a need in our schools to have a web based school management system. So that they could efficiently manage the school with the help of technology. Schools wish to have a school management system which fits the model of our schools and is free or affordable to them. In the quest to find an appropriate open source solution we came across  Open SIS.

We found that, it was an excellent solution but as it is, it does not fit in to the model of our schools. So the YIT community decided to create a fork of open sis and do ySchool or yit-School ( both names are being considered ) as an open source project. The main purpose will be to customize the code base and integrate with other learning related open source projects and create an open source product suitable to be freely used by schools in Jaffna or for that matter schools in developing countries.

We now have a set of  people from the industry who are willing to volunteer and do some real work on this. As a first step the project has been set up on GIT Hub and open SIS code base has been forked in to be used as the starting point.

The project is in PHP, all PHP enthusiasts and those interested in contributing to build a software which will positively influence the lives of the students join as at https://github.com/Yarl-IT-Hub/ySchool. Its also an opportunity to experience the joy of working on an open source project on GIT Hub, which is the social network for the geeks. Those who wish to contribute on this project please contact any of our team members via GIT Hub or join the group on http://groups.google.com/group/yschool?hl=en

  1. Good to hear about it. Did you consider "Moodle" instead of OpenSIS. Moodle is popular among U.K school and as a matter of fact, most of our school system is still heavily based on U.K's educational system.

    This is just a suggestion as I thought if you haven't came across Moodle.
