Design And Implementation Of An Interactive Online Platform For Students And School Supervisors To Communicate Regularly During The Students IT/SIWES Attachment


Abstract


The Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is a skills training programme designed to expose and prepare students of universities and other tertiary institutions for the Industrial Work situation they are likely to meet after graduation. The scheme is aimed at bridging the existing gap between theory and practice of Sciences, Agriculture, Medical Sciences (including Nursing), Engineering and Technology, Management, and Information and Communication Technology and other professional educational programmes in the Nigerian universities. This study aims to provide an interactive online platform for students and school supervisors to communicate regularly during the students IT/SIWIES attachment. This system through its interactive interface and layout can minimize the stress of supervising and submitting reports. This research attempted to establish a foundation for continuous documentation, but there will ultimately be a need to generate separate and in-depth documentation for each aspect of IT reporting. It seeks to provide a steady communication stream via the use of online resources, so as to ensure effective monitoring of students, irrespective of the distance where the student is carrying out his/her training.


Chapter One


Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

The Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is a skills training programme designed to expose and prepare students of universities and other tertiary institutions for the Industrial Work situation they are likely to meet after graduation. It is also a planned and structured programme based on stated and specific career objectives which are geared towards developing the occupational competencies of participants (Mafe, 2009). Consequently, the SIWES programme is a compulsory graduation requirement for all Nigerian university students offering certain courses.

The Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES), is the accepted training programme, which is part of the approved Minimum Academic Standard in the various degree programmes for all Nigerian Universities. The scheme is aimed at bridging the existing gap between theory and practice of Sciences, Agriculture, Medical Sciences (including Nursing), Engineering and Technology, Management, and Information and Communication Technology and other professional educational programmes in the Nigerian tertiary institutions. It is aimed at exposing students to machines and equipment, professional work methods and ways of safeguarding the work areas and workers in industries, offices, laboratories, hospitals and other organizations.

Prior to establishing the Scheme, industrialists and other employers of labor felt concerned that graduates of Nigeria Universities were deficient in practical background studies preparatory for employment in Industries and other organizations. The employers thus concluded that the theoretical education being received in our higher institutions was not responsive to the needs of the employers of labor. Consequently, the rationale for initiating and designing the scheme by the Industrial Training Funds ITF, in 1973.

The scheme is a tripartite programme involving the students, the universities and the employers of labor. It is funded by the Federal Government and jointly coordinated by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) and the National Universities Commission (NUC).


1.2 Statement of the Problem

The Industrial Training/Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme is usually intended for students to get valuable work experience relating to their field of study, due to the difficulty in getting work placement students often find themselves getting jobs in areas far away from their institutions. Supervisors have to wait till the end of the training scheme to assess the performance of the students. As a result of this problem, supervisors find it very difficult to monitor the progress of the student regularly.


1.3 Aim of the Study

The aim of this study is to provide an interactive online platform for students and school supervisors to communicate regularly during the students IT/SIWES attachment.


1.4 Objectives of the Study

  1. To enable school supervisor monitor the progress of the students during their IT/SIWES training.
  2. To enable students and supervisors communicate regularly, this in turn enables the student to provide feedbacks regarding problems encountered during his/her training program.
  3. To enable the lecturer/supervisor determine if the student is gaining relevant work experience during the IT/SIWES training.

1.5 Scope of the Study

This study covers the student and lecturer/supervisor progress report. The automation involves an online portal where the student and lecturers/supervisors can interact regularly.


1.6 Significance of the Study

This study will help to bridge the communication gap between students and supervisors during the students IT/SIWES training programming, it seeks to provide a steady communication stream via the use of online resources, so as to ensure effective monitoring of students, irrespective of the distance where the student is carrying out his/her training.


1.7 Limitation of the Study

As a result of the various stages involved in IT reporting, this research work would be limited to only weekly feedbacks, and the full technical reports submitted at the end of the IT/SIWES exercise. Also this research is limited to an online interaction between a student and his/her supervisor.

Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Summary

An automated IT report system is way of making the IT report submission easy for students and supervisors. Overtime, the process of submitting IT reports and monitoring student’s progress during the industrial training is a very cumbersome task. This is because students are attached to different companies and different parents of the country, so it makes it almost impossible for the supervisor to monitor their progress.

This automated IT reporting system is very user friendly, and makes it easy for supervisors to monitor the progress of students online irrespective of the location where the student is carrying out his/her report.


5.2 Conclusion

Having developed the automated IT reporting system, though it is subject to further modifications of its feature as time goes on. This system through its interactive interface and layout can minimize the stress of supervising and submitting reports.


5.3 Recommendation

Although the system already accomplishes a vast amount of tasks in IT reporting, it is still however subject to improvements. This effectively dictates that there would be continuous need to document changes in IT reporting and submission processes as the technology being used advances. Though this research attempted to establish a foundation for continuous documentation, there will ultimately be a need to generate separate and in-depth documentation for each aspect of IT reporting. In particular, it would be highly desirable to have a more specialized system that would detail the submission procedures and the mechanisms used for grading.

As this application matures in the future and attracts more users, it is envisaged that there would be need to provide faster and more detailed explanation to users. This may be achieved through the development of online feedback forum where frequently asked questions would be answered.
