A Timetable System for Institution of Higher Learning: Case Study Strathmore University Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • In each department in Strathmore University, class schedule is produced and posted on the notice board for students to view their class schedule every semester. If any change occurs in the class schedule (increase in the number of students causes change in rooms) a new timetable is produced and posted. The university does not have a system that manages the class schedules and changes to the schedule. The main aim of the developed system is to create a timetable system that notifies the users (students) on the schedule detail (date, venue, time and lecturer) and any change that may occur in the schedule. The system development methodology to use is Rapid Application Development (RAD) which uses prototyping to introduce the product. The prototype is altered during the testing phase then later on a final produce is produced to the user.
