This year, for the 1st time, we are running a completely ‘Digital’ online election.
It would have been brill to do so within Frog but we haven’t had the chance to roll it out yet so it will have to wait.
I’m really curious as to what other Frog-Schools are doing & how they are going about it as the solution we have had to adopt is the sum of a series of separate parts not a single package. Although they have been pulled together in one place I’d love to know about complete frog solutions. Anyhoo this is what we are doing:
To publicise the event we have used our student blog as the central portal with additional info hosted on out main website. For our straw polls we are using the excellent ‘Polldaddy‘ & for the actual election ‘form’ we are using our install of ‘Our Web Survey‘.
On polling day we’ll have a virtual road to the polling station & a virtual poling booth to attempt to make the process as real as possible.
If you get a chance please let us know what you have been doing with Frog.
After a couple of weeks away from our Frog install during the Easter break (yes the snowboarding was excellent, thank you) , it’s good to see things really taking shape with our template.
Here’s a view of the current student homepage. (Click to enlarge)
As you can see students will have the ability to change their profile picture & update their status once a day if they so desire.
The Movie Title section should be able to pull in any e-stream elements we have uploaded & the music menu will be able to pull in any sound files we (Admins & Staff) upload. Great for pod-casts, music performances etc
It will be interesting to see how many students use the RSS feeds feature for favorite teams, bands, games news etc too.
