1.1 Background Of Study
In many tertiary institutions in the country, students seek a project in a given field of specialty as part of the upper level of their degree programme. Usually, a project can be filled by at most one student, though in some cases a project is suitable for more than one student to work on simultaneously. To give students something of a choice, there should be as wide a range of available projects as possible, and in any case the total number of project places should not be less than the total number of students. Typically a lecturer will also offer a range of projects, but does not necessarily expect that all will be taken up.
Each student has preferences over the available projects that he/she finds acceptable, whilst a lecturer will normally have preferences over the students that he/she is willing to supervise. There may also be upper bounds on the number of students that can be assigned to a particular project, and the number of students that a given lecturer is willing to supervise. In this paper we consider the ways of allocating student project in our various institutions.
1.2 Statement Of The Problem
The traditional way of allocating project to students in our higher institution need to be reconsidered since project/research writing is sensitive aspect of student education in the higher institution.
Before now, lecturers ask students to go out and get project topics for themselves for approval. This system made project writing look less like a class assignment which does not require an extra effort to complete rather an issue of copying.
1.3 Objective Of The Study
With the advancement in file saving and file retrieval system, institution cannot afford to be ignorant of the basic tool, which is the driving force behind technological oriented administration.
Much can be achieve if an institution have a well organized management system. Students project can easily be allocated to each or group of students without the problem of delayed project allocation from the supervisor or conflict of topic between two individual or group of student in the same department. Students update can be easily be accessed if the database system is enhanced.
1.4 Significance Of The Study
Projects provide a flexible framework for engaging students in exploring curricular topics and developing important 21st century skills, such as communication, teamwork, and technology skills. In addition, students are motivated by the fun and creative format and the opportunity to make new friends around the world. For teachers, a school portal enables quick and easy management of student accounts and review of project work.
1.5 Scope Of Study
The research will center on the design and implementation of Student Project Allocation and Management system for the department of computer science in the polytechnic of NEKEDE.
1.6 Limitation Of Study
Usually, every work has some limitations and this study is not exempted.
The two major limitations of this study are the time limits within which the study is expected to be completed as well as financial constraints. The time constraint prevents the researcher to have an in depth study and analysis on the subject matter. While the issue of financial constraint limits the frequency of investigation to/fro the institution toward gathering the necessary information relevant for the study.
1.7 Definition Of Terms
HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a type of computer language that is primarily used for files that are posted on the internet and viewed by web browsers. HTML files can also be sent via email.
Markup language – A markup language is a combination of words and symbols which give instructions on how a document should appear. For example, a tag may indicate that words are written in italics or bold type.
A Web browser is a software program that interprets the coding language of the World Wide Web in graphic form, displaying the translation rather than the coding. This allows anyone to “browse the Web” by simple point and click navigation, bypassing the need to know commands used in software languages.
A file extension is the suffix at the end of a filename that tells a computer, and the computer user, which program is needed to open the file. Also called a filename extension, this suffix preceded by at least one period, is generally one to five characters long but the norm is usually three characters in length.
Email, also sometimes written as e-mail, is simply the shortened form of electronic mail, a protocol for receiving, sending, and storing electronic messages. Email has gained popularity with the spread of the Internet. In many cases, email has become the preferred method of communication.
This often used but little understood set of operations stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. TCP/IP is the combination of the two and describes the set of protocols that allows hosts to connect to the Internet. In actuality, TCP/IP is a combination of more than those two protocols, but the TCP and IP parts of TCP/IP are the main ones and the only ones to become part of the acronym that describes the operations involved
A text file is a computer file that stores a typed document as a series of alphanumeric characters, usually without visual formatting information. The content may be a personal note or list, a journal or newspaper article, a book, or any other text that can be rendered accurately in typewritten form.
A hyperlink is a graphic or a piece of text in an Internet document that can connect readers to another webpage, or another portion of a document. Web users will usually find at least one hyperlink on every webpage. The simplest form of these is called embedded text or an embedded link.
Acronym for World Wide Web
Summary, Recommendation And Conclusion
In summary, the traditional way of allocating project is associated with so many problems ranging from overcrowding of student on one project topic to departmental record of history of project topic. However, we have been able to research and develop measures through which this shortcoming can be overcome with fewer problems.
Therefore, we have been able to develop a solution, if this system is adopted this problem can be address. The development of a web application that can administer student project should be a welcoming development in our institution of various learning.
Considering all that has been researched, I would like to emphasize that the adoption of this new System will not be regretted as it would rather be a help for building more complex design to boost operations and promote the cooperate image of our academic institution. I would also advise that this system be employed in other aspect of our educational system to revive the fallen image of our educational system.
Like the saying goes, there is’ nothing with advantages without disadvantages; this System may result in overhead in some application but the benefits to be derived overrides the overheads.
The designed System is capable of storing needed information, analyzing them, limiting access to information for integrity purposes, but it is however recommended that the different conditions stipulated for the smooth operations of the application are strictly adhered to i.e. regular review and maintenance done etc.
The Internet has truly changed the way we do a lot of things today; we now have the ability to do virtually everything from our computers. The online student project allocation is an emerging technology and a computer system has revolutionized the world thereby making tasks that seems difficult easy by the use of Internet. Students no longer need to overcrowd supervisor office because of project topic or research suggestion as this as been solved by this web application. Students can now at their comfort proceed with their project work online. What a welcoming development.
This project work has emphasized the capabilities and reliabilities of a computer system i.e. It accuracy, speed and timeliness of information that it encompasses.
The most important lesson from this project work is that information is essential and its availability cannot be washed away and the ability to move such information through established networks such as the Internet is the key benefit of the online students project allocation.
In addition, we have conducted a usability study via a website by deploying the web application on a domain for only few invited developers to test the application in order to understand usability issues and suggest future improvements.
