Design and Implementation of Integrated Mobile Responsive Student Enrolment System (Published)
The integrated online student enrolment and information management system enables applicants to apply and enroll into programmes of their preferred choices in Wa Polytechnic prior to the commencement of the academic year and semester. The activities involved in the implementation of the system were requirements gathering, specification analysis, system design, end user training and post implementation review. A prototype of requirement specifications was developed, tested, reviewed and approved by the user. The successful implementation of the student information management system was based on the involvement of the stakeholders working in higher institution of learning. The system allows students to enroll through the Internet without traveling to the campus. It incorporates school management rules and processes which include enrolment, registration and grading. The system design and development was modeled to allow mobile device accessibility and responsiveness. Students receive notices of their application outcome, admission and examination results on their global system for mobile telecommunication (GSM) mobile phones, emails and school website. The mobile responsiveness and user friendliness of the application provide high user experience satisfaction. Since Wa Polytechnic does not have online library system, the system should be scaled up to allow lecturers to upload course materials for students to access.
