Documents, Photos, Podcasts and Newsletters

Most school produce a newletter of some kind but how do you make it avaliable to parents and the wider community without lots of printing? Put it on the website but now you need someone with great ICT and website publishing skill? and how do you make parents aware a newsletter has been published, send an email out? but now you need member of staff to collect the email addresses and keep the up to date.

What if it could all be done automatically?

With Athena you can have as many download types as you wish including word documents and pdfs but also mp3s for your school radio or podcast, photos of school work or events and more. Each download types can then be linked to one or more pages and will automatically show the documents at the bottom with links to any software that may be require to open them. Each download types can also be made available as an RSS feed and for eAlerts where parents can sign up and recieve an email when ever a new item is published, they choose which they want to recieve, register and unregister without any involvement from staff.
