The Gateway course management package was written in 2007/8 in response to many requests received at the CATE conference in Invercargill in November 2007. It was written in conjunction with two Gateway Coordinators in schools north of Auckland whose advice and suggestions were invaluable in ensuring that the package offers the correct and necessary functionality to schools.

It is a Windows package written for the PC environment and will run on Windows 2000, Windows XP and on Macintosh computers (under Terminal Services). Its development is based on over twenty years programming experience, during which time the author has written many software packages for many thousands of users.

This package is designed to make it easy for your school's Gateway coordinator to manage Gateway courses / students / achievements and Ministry of Education returns. 

The package does NOT require the school to be using a particular SMS (School Management System) but, if MUSAC's Classroom Manager software is being used, then data may be exchanged with that package. A similar process is currently being developed to allow the package to interact with the KAMAR Student Management Systsem. If not then STAR exports the relevant data in the form of a text file which may (providing that your SMS supplier has made the necessary facility available) be imported into your school's system.

The package has the following features :

  • A simple range of menu buttons to find your way around the package.

  • A Student specifications screen which allows you to attach placments and courses to individual students, along with the unit standards / certificates involved.

  • The specification of financial costs relating to individual students, placements and courses.

  • The entry of achievement results for each student in each of their placements and courses.

  • The printing, in a variety of formats, of course lists and student lists including a document design feature with several important pre-designed student-based documents already available..

  • A full user manual.

  • Utilities which include :

  •             a Backup / Restore process

  •             The End-of-Year process
