The system currently used by the client is an outdated, insufficient
database package for which little support is available. To
maintain the current level of operation, and add new features
essential for supporting a growing student base, the current
system needs to be replaced.
For our project, we will be developing a customizable, web-based
registration and data entry system which will fit the needs
of the foster parents training program. This database interface
will allow staff at Camosun College International Education
to enter student, course, and location information for access
on the web. It will also allow students of the foster parent
training program to use any computer with Internet access
to register themselves in courses and retrieve their grades
in completed courses.
The system is being developed to facilitate adaptation towards
the needs of other registration and data storage applications.
As such, the end result will be a scalable application, the
usefulness of which will last as long as possible.
Successful completion of the system in development will ease
the registration process for students and greatly reduce the
workload on Camosun College staff.
