The purpose of this study was to design a computerized enrolment system for a rural- based higher education institution and to find out its acceptability in terms of construction design and functionality. The computerized enrolment system was developed using the software Visual Basic, an Object-Oriented Programming visualization tool. The result of the study revealed that the Enrolment System is “Very Acceptable” as evaluated by the selected faculty members and staff of the school. In the light of the present findings and conclusions, the following recommendations are advanced, namely, that this enrolment system should be introduced to the school; that it should be adopted by the school to help the staff find records of students more easily and faster and the system should be utilized as a model for future research, especially for technology or computer-related research studies.
Our redesigned interfaces has more efficient task processes based on the quantitative data from user testing. Participants’ insights are that one of our interface has better aesthetics but the other prototype has better functionality. We were able to reduce a significant amount of time spent on course search with our redesigns. In comparison to the current SIS, our prototypes took less time to enroll in a course.
The Online Enrollment System was proposed for the enhancement of the current enrollment system of Liceo de Cagayan University. The study aimed at creating a system that would provide another option for enrolling and that would compensate for the school’s lack of manpower and time-consuming system. The database of the system is the dbEnrollment. It contains many tables and stores information such as student’s academic records, secretary’s files and records, class schedules, pre-requisites, subjects, curricula and other essential data needed in the system. The proposed system caters to old, freshmen, transferees and shiftees with the following services: subject evaluation, posting of grades, viewing of curriculum, add and update profile. The system lessens the enrollment time, speeds up file management, and minimizes inaccuracies and errors.
Dual Enrollment: A Strategy for Educational Advancement of all Students Abstract
Online dual enrollment has only recently begun to receive attention among educators and policymakers as an educational model with potential for reaching a wide range of students. It is seen as an especially valuable way to serve students in rural areas and in other school districts that lack either the funds or ready access to college partners. According to the Education Commission of the States (2008), there are 17 states where, in policy or practice, online dual enrollment programs exist. However, beyond this, little is known about the actual incidence of online dual enrollment nationally. There are neither comprehensive studies documenting the scope of online dual enrollment nor studies of student outcomes. As illustrated in this section of the report, the little information that exists describesspecific programs or policies. A search of the web reveals that online dual enrollment has, in fact, become widespread.
A wide range of public, private, and for-profit colleges list themselves as providers of online dual enrollment courses. Their information is targeted to multiple audiences: regular high school students and their families, 15 home-schooled students, and students wanting to accrue a few final credits needed for high school graduation. In addition,there are a number of virtual high schools that include dual enrollment options among their listings. Recent research on online learning at both the higher education and K-12 education levels provide the basis for some educated assumptions about the prevalence of online dual enrollment. From these studies, as well as from case examples of online dual enrollment programs, it is possible to extrapolate hypotheses about both the current status and potential growth of online dual enrollment.
