Lots of individual EPs and services are starting to use IPads in their day to day work, but may be struggling with how best to use them in the corporate and school technology minefields!

If you need any help with this or have any ideas for others please post below!
Latest News / New Online and Offline scoring system for CCC (2)
« Last post by geekischic on May 22, 2014, 01:31:15 PM »
We are very pleased to announce that Pearson Assessment have kindly given us permission to include the data tables from their Children's Communication Checklist (CCC-2) in the new platform independent on and off line scoring system we are developing for the EP Toolkit.

This licence is limited to EPs who are members of the forum and work in Swansea or Neath/Port Talbot - if that's you and you'd like to help test it out please contact us and we'll let you know how to access it!

As people may not always have access to a wireless or 3G connection when carrying out an observation, here are some new, simpler instructions for using CORA off line on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone:

  • Connect to the page via this forum as usual in a tab on your web browser when you are on line and leave it open.
  • When you go off line you should still be able to use the page in that tab and all the buttons in the page will work as usual, as long as you
    • DON'T try to refresh the window e.g. by pressing F5
    • DON'T use the back button
We've tried this on a range of browsers and hardware and no problems so far, but please post below if you have any!

CORA / Re: What can CORA do for me?
« Last post by geekischic on November 02, 2013, 11:44:24 AM »
Yes CORA is very useful and interesting. I assume you will add other observations? At the moment it seems to be behaviour heavy. However a lot of our work as EP might involve other observational issues (i.e. social communication, purely learning behaviours in various classes etc).

As you say Maj - what I've tried to do with this (and the other programs) at this stage of development is offer a 'shell' with sample content for feedback on the 'shell' itself and also contributions people would like to add to the content (which will be given full acknowledgement of course!).

It is possible to have these in a database for on line use, at the moment I'm trying to make CORA usable both on line and offline from the same web page - not as straightforward as it may sound, as a web 'standard' on different hardware, operating systems and browsers are still some way off being that believe me :)

As a result I want to try and build a good basic set of comments into the page at this point for everyone to use.

If you've got any you'd like me to add it's really easy, just see  this topic.

Hi Stuart

Yes CORA is very useful and interesting.  I assume you will add other observations? At the moment it seems to be behaviour heavy.  However a lot of our work as EP might involve other observational issues (i.e. social communication, purely learning behaviours in various classes etc). 

If you'd like to find out more about how the toolkit programs work,  why not join us for a live demo via Skype on Wednesday 30th. October between 7.15 pm and 8.15 pm BST

We hope be able to accomodate up to 4 members at the same time on a group call - just search for EPtoolkit on SKYPE and send a request to add contact beforehand if you'd like to take part.

This is an ideal opportunity to get free tuition, ask questions and learn how to get the most of the programs + don't be shy we don't bite.

NB You don't have to have or use  a webcam to take part, you can join in by audio only if you like, as long as you can receive video so you can see the live  screen demonstration.
Latest News / Happy Half Term!
« Last post by geekischic on October 27, 2013, 08:41:04 PM »
Hope you've survived the first half of the Autumn term  + the hurricanes and the flooding!!!

Quite a few of our new beta testers have been trying out the EP Toolkit programs over the last half term and we hope things are going well.

If you've had a go please let us know what you think here or on the Facebook page so we know what programs people want and what we can do to make them better for everyone.

If you haven't had a go yet, I dare you to dip your toes in the water over half term and again let us know what you think - you won't break anything honest!

NB If you've mislaid your password you can easily reset it by:
  • clicking login in the line : Welcome, Guest. Please login or register. at the top of the page
  • clicking Forgot your password?
then following the instructions

Look forward to hearing from you!
Latest News / Happy New (School) Year!

Hope you enjoyed a break and you're still in that euphoric hinterland at the beginning of the Autumn term where everything is rosy and your new school year resolutions are still being met :)

You probably didn't have a chance to check out the EP Toolkit in the last half of the summer term, and there was too much catching up to do during the school hols, so this is just a reminder that it's still there waiting to give you a hand!

If you need help with any of the tools just post in the forum or here

Look forward to your feedback!

Hi James

Firstly, download the free Dropbox app to your tablet (a simple Play Store/Itunes search should find it).

Let me know when it's installed and I'll send you a link to our Dropbox folder so you can access CORA offline.

Dropbox is necessary for running the web page off line - it's a great program anyway and gives you free cloud storage space for your files and photos as well.

Please see new post (Reply #8) below for a quick and easy way to use CORA offline without the need for Dropbox
