Hi Amy,

I use something called, Meeting Room Booking System (MRBS)…  It’s free and web-based PHP/MySQL but it does take some effort to setup and customize.  You need to be comfortable getting a LAMP setup going.  I have mine running from its own Fedora box, and it’s rock solid.  Teachers can login and reserve lab time on a first-come, first-serve basis.  It makes a POP3 connection to our mail server for authentication.  The nice thing is that you can run it by your own periodic schedule.

Here’s what it looks like:

Here is the MRBS site:

Hope this helps,

Eric

Subject: electronic scheduling of labs, carts, equipment

 

Hi School IT:

 

Are any of your schools scheduling the use of mobile carts, labs or other equipment electronically- via Google Calendar? GroupWise Calendar? other?

 

What's working? What isn't?

 

Is there anything that has revolutionized the scheduling process that you can share?

 

Thanks so much!

 

Amy T.
