Back again by popular demand !!

I’m pleased to announce the re-opening of our new website. We apologize for the inconvenience caused to you when our former server conked out. Our new web host has an excellent reputation and we will employ redundant back-up systems.

If you are reading this now, you should be congratulated for finding the new location of the IE Website. The site, designed by the computer whizes at Cyber Synergy, will provide the same useful information as our previous site, along with a lot more functionality. With the customized open-source software “Word Press” behind it, teachers will be able to create their own pages to publish class assignments and announcements, and they will be able to create blogs for their classes. Students will be able to join class blogs and comment on entries written by their classmates. As the site offers rss feeds, it is possible to “subscribe” to blogs, news, etc. and read new postings on your favorite news reader, such as iGoogle. Teachers will be able to make their profiles available to others and even upload podcasts to their personal spaces. We hope that teachers and students will use these features to the utmost.
