FileMaker’s range of solutions is expected to include Advocate, a digital cumulative folder for guidance counselors; Portal, which helps Admissions Offices organize data; Keystone, a data organizer used to track enrolled students; and Generations, used for tracking alumni and constituents for fund-raising.
FileMaker is also planning on showing off its new FileMaker 6 products: FileMaker Pro 6, FileMaker Pro 6 Unlimited, FileMaker Server and FileMaker Mobile 2.1. Educators who stop by FileMaker’s booth will be eligible to win free copies of FileMaker Pro 6 and FileMaker Mobile 2.1.
FileMaker’s forthcoming efforts at FETC mirror its Web-based efforts to appeal to educators. The company recently launched
a K-12 education site
that provides free downloads, breaking news, schedules of conferences and events, and other useful information for educators, along with special purchasing.
FETC kicks off tomorrow at the Orlando County Convention Center. The event gathers thousands of attendees who go to workshops, special sessions, and attend vendor exhibits all relating to the use of technology in education.
