The Student Shuffler AIR application is now available via Adobe AIR Marketplace.
shuffler
The app was built to facilitate a fair and transparent way of organizing classroom presentations whether by group or individual student. The instructor goes in before class and inputs each presenter into the application edit interface. This is saved locally to the internal database. When it comes time to begin presentations, the instructor needs only to run the app and the students can all see their names being shuffled into a random, numbered presentation order. This not only frees the instructor of any responsibility toward the selection of presentation order, but always transmits an air of fairness around the process that the students can appreciate.
I hope others find this to be a useful piece of software!

    I’ve seen that error before in regard to AIR Badge installs. I have installed Student Shuffler on a number of machines without issue but have added a direct link to the .air file for anyone who has this problem. It seems to be very machine-specific when I’ve encountered it.

    Excuse me, but I would like to enquire how to open the .air file. I have searched numerous websites on any program to open or activate this file but none have a suitable answer. Can someone please do my a favor by sending a link or a solution to this problem to my e-mail :

      You must have the Adobe AIR runtime installed on your system. It works like a .jar file for which you must have the Java runtime.
