DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ONLINE COURSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

ABSTRACT
The aim of this study is to provide online classroom that will be running alongside the traditional classroom system, complimenting and making up for all the areas in which it is lacking, like in the area of space, effective communication of knowledge. It can go a long way to make provision to web application also known as web software that will enhance learning, like an online laboratory. Online classroom is an excellent method of teaching the adult learners because it allows them to discover new skills, technologies and strategies on their own with or without the help of their lecturers. The methodology adopted in this project was in line with the Object oriented analysis and design method (OOADM) that simply means a way of organizing software as a collection of discrete objects that incorporate both their data structure and behaviour. Therefore this methodology is developed into three aspects such as Object-oriented analysis, Object-oriented design and Object-oriented programming. During the course of this study, the researcher applied the process of e-learning solutions which is suitable for developing contexts characterized by technology constraints, in designing the project. Online classroom can go along way promoting the growth of education in schools with the use of e-learning to provide online video, online course material and enhancing easy communication between the lecturers and the students.

INTRODUCTION
In 1999, online courses became a new and novel way of teaching and learning. And since then, the world of teaching and learning has changed significantly, and it is still changing till date. Pallof and Keith (2007)stated that online learning communities would become an area of study, and it has. This area of study became necessary to in order to produce seasoned learning process online. Today online learning has become common place. The explosive growth of the Internet has contributed to the increasing popularity of this type of learning, along with a desire to reach students at a distance to increase effectiveness in teaching and learning, and to provide a type of education that will be very helpful to students. It is impressive to see almost everything being offered online, from math and science courses to art and even dance. The emergence of new technologies has made almost anything possible – a trend that will continue into the future Pallof and Keith (2007). The world as we know is gradually getting computerized, and students all over the country and the rest of the world spend a great deal of their time on the Internet. Therefore there is every need for educational institutions to utilize this development by making their course materials available online. This will enable the students to carry on with their academic work online as well.

Identifying teaching methods that may be effective in different educational levels, Hussain and Ali, (2012) noted that in the lower levels the drill and practice method may be effective and fruitful while at the higher stages the method should be according to the demands of the subject and the interest of the students.
