Implementation of a Web System for College of Education Administration
Colleges of education especially the Federal College of Education, Pankshin, usually gives two weeks period for registration of students whenever a session begins. These two weeks for registration has not been enough. Lecture hours were lost because registration of students and lecture went together. This is because the registration exercise is being handled manually. This paper will discuss how a new system will be developed to handle this exercise that is being handled manually. The system will manage the student from the time of purchasing an entry form from the college to the time the student finishes from the college. The system is a web based andl provides an online application form, WAEC and NECO authenticatio result presented by the prospective candidates, process the admission, provide a platform for all the fee payment, course registration, calculate GPA and CGPA at the end of every semester and
session respectively and compute the transcripts on demand. With this new system students will complete the semester and session registration within the period allocated for it. There will be no need for extension of time and there will be no lecture hours lost.
