This project provides solutions for the Course Management System currently being used by UTP
thru its website to handle academic matters involving students, lecturers and academic staffs.
The problem is the system is unsecured by without having proper authentication like validation
control and login page that enables anybody to hack into the system and manipulate the contents.
Next is unreliability of transactions' data processing and information displaying where the result
is not displayed instantly to students and sometimes the result is incorrect and contains wrong
information. The significances are the student won't be able to see the latest the transactions'
result instantly and incorrect information display. Motivations on these problems are derived
from the author when experiencing the common problems like other students. Furthermore, these
problems occur every semester; creating displeasure feeling and reducethe trust of users towards
the system. Main intentions of this project are to improve the performance of data processing
speed, reduce system error in data input and output display, and eliminate traditional process of
lab registration. It is also for simplifying and reducing the number of process transactions and to
enhance usability and navigation structure by users towards web based applications design. The
project implements re-engineering concept where the objective is to breakdown the modules,
improve and enhance the necessary parts, restructure them back and come out withtotally better
system. Visual Studio.NET software is usedto design the webapplication and function while the
programming language used is called ASP.NET. The theories gathered from researches
conducted are valuable to understood on how to evaluate the potential elements of web usability
and to further understand users' requirements. This project covers basic ways of providing
security using ASP.NET technology and the elements used to improve the users' pleasure and
functionalities expected within education environment at higher education institution. As results,
good web based application design are implemented, security method and procedure is
developed and provided, data and information is processed faster and displayed accurately, the
levels of transaction processes are reduced and also improvements towards system performance
and functionalities in navigation and lowering the frequency of problem occurrence. For future
work, the integration with mobile devices, SMS or email features in notification and combined
together with E-Learning system are strongly recommended for potential improvements and
hence more flexibility usage.
