Project Presentation

What is a Project

Individual /group completed & well-documented project, is a clear demonstration of the students capability to handle /solve a common problem /task by using his knowledge & practical effort by using a computer, hardware and software environments available.

The aims of a project

The aims of a completed project are to, Asses the demonstrated capability of the student in solving a common problem, to demonstrate the application of a computer to solve common problems by using the available software & hardware environments, & to demonstrate & explain ideas of the project in a standard documentation.

Few such simple features can identify a project of this type; it should target to solve a common problem in the society, which may include a database, algorithms, hardware & software or menu systems, inputs & outputs with a set of given routines.

Unsuitable project topics

For both computing and information technology projects, the system must involve a user inputting data of some kind, and obtaining output, the production of a documentation about some aspect of computing is therefore not suitable.Examples:

A project, which consists of a comparative study of two word processors (software comparisons).

A project, of production of a magazine using a desktop publishing system (documentations only).

A project, of general description of how to use a particular spreadsheet or database or database package (explaining common packages).

Suitable project topics

Project work must run on a PC or related computer system with the available software & hardware with a clear & well-documented standard documentation.

It should target to solve a common problem in the society, which may include, a database, algorithms, hardware & software or menu systems, inputs & outputs with a set of given routines, with a clear & completed documentation.

Suitable project topics

Student Registration

Handling Facilities fees

Class Registration

Preparation of Marks sheet

Duty roster in the class room cleaning

Collection of data including Addresses of Friends

Collection of Rainfall data in student residential area. This data helps farmers to predict weather

Daily duty reports of teachers

Handling sports meet data, selecting students according to the houses, handling events, preparing reports

Preparation of activity plan materials

Students Progress

Goals:

Selection of students according to the leadership

Identifying weaknesses of students

Issuing character certificates

Preparation of health report according to daily health condition students environmental factors

Maintaining staff records

Finding relevant details of teachers when required

Students’ duty chart

Classroom environment

Toilets

Surrounding

 

Project planning, feasibility study

Establishes a high-level view of the intended project and determines its goals.

Systems design

Describes desired features and operations in detail, including screen layouts, business rules, process diagrams, pseudo code and other documentation.

Implementation

The real code is written here.

Integration and testing

Brings all the pieces together into a special testing environment, then checks for errors, bugs and interoperability.

Acceptance, installation, deployment

The final stage of initial development, where the software is put into production and runs actual business.

Maintenance

What happens during the rest of the software’s life: changes, correction, additions, moves to a different computing platform and more. This, the least glamorous and perhaps most important step of all, goes on seemingly forever.

System Implementation

Example

Student’s Class Register

Student report

School library

Student Admission

Student Admission System

Design a computer based system to handle students admission to a school

( this system should facilitate to store Data of each student’s Name, Date of birth Address,Grade, Admission number, House, Sex, Guardian and retrieve information such as grade 10 students, under 15 students, all girls in grade 5 etc.

Questionnaires

Questionnaires are a series of questions designed to get specific information from their readers (participants). Some questionnaires require yes/no answers; others ask for a choice from a set of pre-supplied answers, and others ask for a longer response or comment. Sometimes questionnaires are sent in electronic form, and sometimes they are given to the users on paper.

Interviews

Interviews involve asking the participants a set of questions verbally. Often interviews are face-to-face, but they donft have to be. If interviewed in their own work or home setting, people may find it easier to talk about their activities and respond by showing the interviewer what they do and what systems and other artifacts they use. Interacting with a human encourages people to respond effectively.

Studying Documentation

Procedures and rules are often written down in manuals and these are a good source of data. Such documentation should not be used as the only source as everyday practices may augment them and may have been devised by those concerned to make the procedures work in a practical setting. Thus, an idealized account is given in the manuals, as compared to everyday practices. There are no targeted rules to decide which methods are the most appropriate for identifying specific research needs.
